A good student should have following five characteristics.
Kaak cheshta bako dhyanam,
Swan nindra tathaiwa cha
Vidyarthi panch lakshnam.
काक चेष्टा, बको ध्यानं,
स्वान निद्रा तथैव च ।
विद्यार्थी पंच लक्षणं ।।
The true meaning of these sloka is as follows-
1. Efforts should be similar to a crow, (Repetitive, remember story of a crow trying to drink water from a pot- while placing pieces of stones to raise the water level)
2.Focus on the work like a crane who stand still silently to catch fish like a good observer.
3. Take alert naps (sleep) similar to that of a dog that identify known or unknown visitors even in his nap and guards the house.
4She/he should eat a bit less and as far as possible as excessive food brings lethargy which causes more sleep and brings tiredness.
5. Stay away from sweet home that is away from comfort zone or homely comfort.
During studies one has to undergo hard work but later it brings sweet fruit which one can enjoy always.
We can always be a good learner and everyday can learn something new. If we have this habit of learning then one can learn till his /her last breath and enjoy student life. A good student may become an ideal teacher one day and can motivate many students.
A good teacher studies more and grows every moment. An ideal teacher possesses
1. An idea of giving.
2. Power of listening.
3 Attitude of striving for perfection.
4. Skill of doing better.
5. Power of taking criticism sportingly.
Healthy criticism helps us to improve. But never criticize. Neither speak evil nor listen evil of others. Don’t live in negativity. How to stop negative feelings? Start forgiving. Ask for forgiveness and forgive all. Let us speak “sorry” at least three times with feelings, with reason and with right attitude. Rigidity comes when we cannot forgive and ask for forgiveness.
In day to day life please help someone. Giving makes you feel happy and happy goes lucky. At least you can water the plants in your garden.
To get materialistic things in life like relationship health, carriers, jobs, business you have to believe in good situations, you have to visualize good situations and say “thank you” three times with reason before and after the work
Use the power of feel and knowledge. Let us bless each other and try to earn other’s blessings. Bless each and every condition. Then you can prove yourself a blessed person.
