Hindu Guru Mantra

The Guru or teacher has great importance in Hindu culture; this is so since ancient times. The Guru has occupied a position second to none, and even the Gods and parents came after the Guru in ancient India.

The Guru was the one who took charge of the pupil from his parents and the pupil stayed with Guru in his residence which was known as the Gurukul.

The Guru was the one who imparted pure knowledge to his pupil, hence the Guru is described as being the one who is Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. These three are the Hindu trinity of the Creator, protector and the Destroyer.

The Guru is also described as the Parabrahma or the Universal energy or the Ever Existent.

However the modern times are the very opposite of those ancient times and the very definition of student and teacher has undergone a radical change. I hope we learn from the wisdom of the ancients.
