Who is Your Teacher?
Jul 5, 2004
Today, I spoke at the Young Jains Convention. After the talk, many kids surrounded me with very personal questions that I myself had gone through many years ago.
One of them asked me a question and said, "Who is your teacher?" I told him about various inspiration I had in my life, like my tennis coach Jeff Nelson. And then, amidst this huddle of inspired kids, I say: "But really, everything in front of me is my teacher. You are my teachers too." And I bow down and touch the feet of the guy who asked me the question. Stunned, they listen on.
Couple minutes later, that kid bows down and touches my feet.
