Teachers Day Greetings

Teachers Day Greetings - Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan Birthday - SEP 5th

Gurur brahmaa gurur vishnuh
gurur devo maheshvarah
gurur saakshaat parabrahma
tasmai shree gurave namah.

Meaning
Know the Guru to be Brahma himself. He is Vishnu. He is also Shiva. Know Him to be the Supreme Brahman, and offer thy adorations unto that peerless Guru.

This is how we respect our Guru's (Teachers), I thought of sharing this with you on the occasion of Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan birthday. As you all know this day is also celebrated as the Teachers Day in India - SEP 5th every year.

As students we all have a lot of influence on us by our Teachers and there is no doubt in the fact that they are the one who put us in the right path. It is so important that in which ever position that we are in today - we should spend some time and remember all those teachers who shaped our careers.

Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan is also India’s first vice president and second president, he was also given the highest civilian award of the country - Bharat Ratna - so he is referred as Bharat Ratna Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. He was born in 1888 and passed away in 1975, Sir Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan got the Bharat Ratna Award in 1954

Radhakrishnan was also a famous scholar and philosopher and the introduction of western philosophy into Indian schools of thought is attributed to him. He is the most prominent philosopher of past century who took the Indian philosophy to the global level. He represented India in the (Calcutta University) at the International Congress of Philosophy.

When his students and friends wanted to celebrate his birthday as a celebrity’s birthday, Sir Radhakrishnan requested the students not to celebrate it as an individual’s glory, but instead celebrate it as a day of celebration for all the teachers of the country. Since then, September 5 every year is celebrated as the Teacher’s day in India.

So on this important occasion of Teachers Day - join me in sending teachers day greetings and messages to all the teachers.
