Both a Teacher and Guru are rare and revered alike.

I would like to share this via one of the emails from my friend Dr. Sudha Nambisan, who first got it from another Doctor..... The writer is anonymous but the thought is astounding, fantastic and true..... Read on and Share / Comment / Post ..... Thanks.
"I would like to say, both Teachers and Gurus alike are revered and worshipped in our Country India and special days like Teacher's Day and Guru Poornima are special days to Celebrate".

My Special Thank you and gratitude to ALL my Teachers and my Yoga Gurus .....

A teacher takes responsibility of your growth
A Guru makes you responsible for your growth.
A teacher gives you things you do not have and require
A Guru takes away things you have and do not require.
A teacher answers your questions
A Guru questions your answer
A teacher helps you get out of the maze
A Guru destroys your maze
A teacher requires obedience and discipline from the pupil
A Guru requires trust and humility from the pupil
A teacher clothes you and prepares you for the outer journey
A Guru strips you naked and prepares you for the inner journey
A teacher is a guide on the path
A Guru is the pointer to the way
A teacher sends you on the road to success
A Guru sends you on the road to freedom
When the course is over you are thankful to the teacher
When the discourse is over you are grateful to the Guru
A teacher explains the world and its nature to you
A Guru explains yourself and your nature to you
A teacher makes you understand how to move about in the world
A Guru shows you where you stand in relation to the world
A teacher gives you knowledge and boosts your ego
A Guru takes away your knowledge and punctures your ego
A teacher instructs you
A Guru constructs you
A teacher sharpens your mind
A Guru opens your mind
A teacher shows you the way to prosperity
A Guru shows the way to serenity
A teacher reaches your mind
A Guru touches your soul
A teacher gives you knowledge
A Guru makes you wise
A teacher gives you maturity
A Guru returns you to innocence
A teacher instructs you on how to solve problems
A Guru shows you how to resolve issues
A teacher is a systematic thinker
A Guru is a lateral thinker
A teacher will punish you with a stick
A guru will punish you with compassion
A teacher is a pupil what a father is to son
A Guru is to pupil what mother is to her child
One can always find a teacher
But Guru has to find and accept you
A teacher leads you by the hand
A Guru leads you by example
When a teacher finishes with you, you graduate.
When a Guru finishes with you, you celebrate.
