A great teacher has the following typical attributes, Gives you guidance Makes you familiar with the tools of developing solutions Encourages you to learn and find answers Does not give you easy answers Encourages dialog in the class for learning between students So what becomes of a student nurtured by a great teacher, Student becomes self sufficient, drilled in guidance and a possible role model and helper of others Analogy: You don't give someone fish when they are hungry, you teach them how to fish so they are never hungry again One encounters many a Sikhs in various walks and theaters of life who either through their upbringing, their company or bad teaching start taking the easy way out. They look for answers in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji rather than develop understanding. They are looking for cheat sheets of facts to show to others or prove they are right. They take words and quote. They take Tuks/sentences and they quote. They take bunch of separate lines/tuks and create a story. What results from such as stroking one's ego, making one look more knowledgeable, make one look more respectful of Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji. However nothing could be far from the truth. Such people are just cheating on themselves, they get false satisfaction and some may at advanced age suddenly realize that their approach was a farce. So if you want to respect Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji, spend the time to understand. Converse with others with an open mind with as much to learn as to share your thoughts. Please don't be dis-respectful and quote or treat Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji as a book of solutions or book of fast facts or an encyclopedia. It is a teacher and the best teacher at that. Be a respectful student driven by the need to study, understand and apply. Sat Sri Akal.
