Behaviour of a Teacher

Teaching is a respectable and very fine profession. A teacher is really respectable and adorable. If we have respect for our teacher(Guru), we get spontaneous flow of knowledge from the teacher to the taught, this was pronounced by respectable Chandra Sir who had been teaching in R.R. Public School, Noorpur with me as a science teacher. He did well and am too much impressed by these words. Actually these are the teachings of Vedas too and told by some rishi.
In Sanskrit, it is told - 'Acharya Devo Bhava'. It is aptly true because he uses to distribute knowledge of different subjects that is why he is called 'Dev'. There are different subjects like Science, Maths, English, Hindi etc. which are taught in schools and the students use to study and learn all those with hard work and continuous thinking about their studies. You know that by continuously thinking about our studies we may do inventions too.
As you know, 'Guru Govind dou khare kake lagon paye, balihari guru aapno Govind diyo bataye', is aptly true. Our spiritual guru shows us the path of god that is why he is adorable even if in the presence of god. In vedas, the relation between teacher and taught is just like the relation between father and his son or daughter. A teacher for a student is very much respectable and praise worthy. Ignorant students can not understand it and that is the reason, the students, now-a-days do not have respect for them. Now-a-days some lower standard and victim teachers are not able to continue this pious type of relation between teacher and taught. As you know only a fish can make dirty the whole pond. This is the reason that this relation is sometimes seem very bad but we should not think about the whole system of teacher and taught like this.
Meet U in next Post.

Sandhya IV

Sorry! U had to wait for a long time for this IVth part of Sandhya. Actually I became too much busy in my daily tasks that I could not find the time for U. Well, now I am writing this part in which first let me repeat gayatri mantra and after that two more hymns:
Guru Mantra
Om bhurbhuvah swah tat saviturvareniyam bhargo devasya dheemahi dhio yo nah prachodayaat||1, 19||
Meaning: O protector! truthful! Live! Joyful! Vital, reliever of sorrow, happiness provider God! We accept your all images which are as follows - en lighter of soul, full of scientific light, acceptable, purest,  who fulfills our every need. All these images would inspire our mind  to good and positive actions.
He eeshwar dayanidhe bhavatkrippya anen japopasnadi karmana dharm arth kaam mokshaanam sadya siddhirbhavennah||20||
O merciful god! By your kindness, by muttering prayers, devotion and actions; doing actions for the sake of others and true justice, to get worldly pleasure with religious deeds, to get prosperity and fruits with law(religion) and money [actually dharm(law), arth(money and prosperity), kam(to complete desires) and salvation all these four are accomplishments.]; we should become please by getting leave from all sorrows, bad habits, bad actions and bad persons[salvation].
Om namah sahmbhavaya cha mayobhavaya cha namah shankaray cha mayaskaraya cha namah shivaya cha shivtaraya cha||21||
O salvation provider and the house of salvation! O worldly pleasure provider god! We salute thee. You always do our best, O joy provider for your devotees! we salute thee. O sorrow taker and well wisher god! we salute thee many times.
Now before Sandhya I we should do some tasks. These are given below-
Achman(Taking Sips)
In the beginning, after reciting gayatri mantra, we should recite this Yajurveda verse-
Om shannodevi rabhishtaye apo bhavantu peetaye shayyon rabhi sravantu nah||2||
O omniprotector! full of divine prosperity and omni present god! for the sake of getting desired pleasure, for getting salvation(full pleasure - which is not worldly), for complete protection, you must be well wisher for us or you should do our welfare and always pour pleasure on us.
[we should take three water sips for this hymn]

To get power in our organs:-
Touching Organs(with water)
Om vak vak, (mouth)
Om pranah pranah (nose)
Om chakshuh chakshuh (eyes)
Om Shtotram shrotram (ears)
Om nabhih (Naval)
Om hridayam (heart)
Om kanthah (throat)
Om shirah (head)
Om bahubhyaam yashobalam (shoulders)
Om kartalkar prishtheh (Back of palms)
(Firstly touch left organ after right)

To make our organs pious:
Sprinkling(Water) on organs
Om bhuh punatu shirasi (Head)
Om bhuvah punatu netrayoh (eyes)
Om swah punatu kanthe (Throat)
Om mahah punatu hridaye (heart)
Om janah punatu nabhyaam (naval)
Om tapah punatu padayoh (feet)
Om satyam punatu punah shirasi (Head)
Om kaham brahm punatu sarvatrah (All organs)
Pranayaam Verse
Om bhuh, Om bhuvah, Om swah, Om mahah, Om janah, Om tapah, Om satyam.||5||
Vital, sorrow destroyer, joy provider, great, father of all, to whom we can know by the way of hardship, who is never-ending and truthful.
[Method of doing pranayaam will be published later I promise.]
See U in the next post soon.
