The art of teaching

We are not born knowing how to live.Knowledge comes with learning.To make the learning process a source of joy, teachers need to believe that "to teach is to learn twice".Freely sharing knowledge with others has two distinct advantages.By helping others to improve, you can contribute to the growth of the art and to the growth of others.Often the teacher - student relation ship gets marred by emotional entanglement.By maintaining a distance ,the teacher helps himself and the student see things with a balance.When students are trained it is essential for the teacher to leave the students alone, for without his absence they can not develop themselves.In the words of Swami Vivekanand "Plants always remain small under a big tree".
