Obeisance

On the auspicious occasion of Guru Purnima, I have composed a few lines to pay deference to all those from I have received knowledge and guidance. The composition reads as under:

We are born with a belief

Brahma, Vishnu, Mahesh form a holy trinity;

But the Guru enjoys a position as important if not more

By his comparison to trinity, we give him divinity.

As goes the another saying,

I bow before Guru ahead of the God ;

For had my Guru not shown me the path,

How would ever I would have realised the God?

And if such is the place of Guru in our scriptures,

I rather be a student perpetually than be a Guru

Bow today in front of all those who taught me

And thank those who have placed me on the high pedestal of a Guru!

A very happy Guru Purnima to all my Gurus and to my friends and well wishers who have placed me on such a pedestal of which I am not worthy of.

  1. Very nicely written Sir.
    Truly the place of Guru is above all, as much as God. Our parents being our first Gurus, followed by all others whom we continue to learn from.

    The Guru Poornima day is a one which I can never also forget for a reason, I lost my first Guru..my mom on the same day 2 years back.
    I bow to all my Gurus who have taught me whatever I have learnt.
