Be a Humble Teacher

“If you want to enlighten others, get enlightened yourself. What you read in books is not enough. As a Yoga teacher, you should show your students the way because you know it well. Don’t pose as an all-knowing person. That’s the problem: Are you going to teach or preach? Preaching is not important.

Practicing is what’s important.

In fact, nobody is a teacher; we are all learners. Sometimes, we learn from the students themselves. So be humble and gently impart what you know. Say: ‘This is all I know; this what I’m hoping for. You try. You may even get it before me.’ That kind of humility is important.

“God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti.”

– Sri Swami Satchidananda
