‘Teacher to serve the society with Selflessness’ was the area of discussion for the resource person Dr. K. Subrahmanyam, the Pro-Vice Chancellor at S-VYASA (Yoga University) Bengaluru. The workshop was held at Sarvanaman Vidya Mandir, Bharuch on Wednesday, 17th July, 2013 between 11:30 am. to 12:30 pm.
In a very short span of his speech, Sir touched almost all the core qualities that a teacher requires. He began with human psychology and quoted, ‘Fools miss opportunity, ordinary men make it, wise see it while yogis – real teachers transform difficulties or disadvantages into opportunities.
With the help of some mythological epics, Sir elucidated that the selfless service is a very great boon of a teacher. One must try to make everything for the advantage of others and be useful to the welfare of society. In this divine service, not to be self-seeking, self-centered and bodily bound but dedicate everything. Unselfishness is more paying than selfishness.
Sir, very proudly said that cultured people are seen only in teachers community in India and they are not merely preceptors but exemplifiers for the humanity. Thus, the workshop was concluded very rewardingly with the punch line that the teacher must update their knowledge and bring into the use to others and subsequently it turns into the GYAN-YAGNA.
