On a full moon day,
to the noble teacher, we pray!
Through teachers, wisdom is ours to find,
they eliminate the ignorance of our mind.
If the mind is a garden and thoughts are the seeds,
then a teacher is the nurturing gardener who plucks out the weeds.
A child’s mind is the soft clay,
that a teacher moulds in the finest way.
Blossoming are the lives that have a mentor’s blessing upon them,
teachers are the strong roots, and their love is the anchoring stem.
Guru Purnima is an honourable tradition,
to celebrate a teacher’s guidance and dedication.
We thank our dearest teachers today,
They are the best in every way!
