I take issue with this, if one were to seek wisdom then one would be able to experience dukh and sukh, but not be a slave to it, in any way. If you detach, you turn into a zombie one way or another, we are supposed to be householders, husbands, fathers, friends, employers, how can one be all these things if one is detached, surely detachment is another Vedic philosophy?Your first statement is true, which is why dukh and sukh are there to be experienced, but then detached from. Our purpose is to live, discover, detach and teach others Truth detachment aswell.
I personally do not think it is my place or indeed anyone's place to teach anyone anything, I speak, I act, if anyone wishes to use this speech or acts to springboard themselves, that is great, but none of us are teachers, you know what they say,
"Those who can, do; those who can't, teach"
I have said it before, I will say it again, I do not know of anyone who has found a state of mind enlightened enough to be able to teach without an agenda. The trouble with being a teacher is the damned ego, to my mind they go hand in hand, better to stay humble and keep learning, and help others learn.
and that is why they were Gurus and we are notThe Gurus lived their higher purpose, they discovered who they are, and shared their discovery with humanity.
