 Guru Purnima Quote 3

3. Quote

Respect leads to service, and serving the Guru brings knowledge. Knowledge brings clarity, and detachment brings freedom from pain.


Shloka

ज्ञानस्य फलं विरतिः विरतिफलं चाश्रवनिरोधः॥

Source: Vivekachudamani


Message

Children, we should always be humble because that leads us to the divine service to our gurus. If we serve our gurus, we get the boon of knowledge and wisdom. Right knowledge helps us do good karma (right actions) which finally takes us closer to god. For instance, if we help others, it makes us feel very nice. And feeling content in ourselves is the ultimate goal of our lives.
