Learned from: Baba Hari Dass, Silent Monk & Guru
In Hindu, “teacher’ is translated as “guru”. For a long time, Baba Hari Dass was reluctant to think of himself as a teacher, preferring to call himself a monk. Then one day, in response to the question, “Are you a teacher?” he answered, “I teach to learn”. And that is the essence of Baba Hari Dass.
“He who does not research has nothing to teach” – Proverb
“To teach is to learn twice” – Joseph Joubert
