Learning - Teaching : A process of offering and receiving

Learning and teaching are the processes of life improvement. Learning is the key to leading and earning better life. Teaching is the key to reaching to the inner potential of learners and nurturing them to grow.

The qualities of the teacher and the learner, the offerer and receiver, raise the learning process to divine connection.

Know that from seers, communicating ones
Knowledgeable and Experienced ones
By worshipping and serving them
And with respect enquiring from them

Bhagavad Gita (IV-34)

The three qualities of a Teacher are Knowledge, Experience and Effective Communication. Experience without Knowledge is doing without knowing. Knowledge and experience without communication is potential without transformation into currents of offering and receiving. An excellent teacher knows well, does well and communicates well.

The three qualities of a learner are Worshipping, Serving and Gentle Enquiring. Worshipping lifts the teacher’s mind to a divine conscious level and charges him emotionally for inspired teaching. Serving connects the learner and the teacher at the physical level and when the learner serves, he deserves. The gentle enquiring connects the teacher and the learner at intellectual and at thought levels and prepares them for effective transmission of ideas.

Thus, the learner and the teacher are linked by Shakti, Bhakti and Yukti through Serving, Worshipping and Enquiring at physical, emotional and intellectual planes for transmission of essence of experience with flow of communication along with brightness of knowledge. The learner then receives knowledge and is ready to experience on his own through practice. Thus, both the teacher and the learner experience oneness through Samarpan and Sweekar (offering and receiving). Thus both of them are liberated and the processes of Shakti, Bhakti and Yukti lead to Mukti- the transcendence of freedom- the liberation.

WITH KNOWLEDGE, YOU KNOW THE WORDS
WITH EXPERIENCE, YOU KNOW THE MEANING
WITH COMMUNICATION, YOU ATTAIN COMMUNION
WITH OFFER AND RECEIVE, YOU ENJOY LIBERATION

THIS IS THAT
THIS (LEARNING) IS THAT (LIBERATION)
