      Be a Humble Teacher

      "If you want to enlighten others, get enlightened
      yourself. What you read in books is not enough.
      As a Yoga teacher, you should show your students
      the way because you know it well. Don't pose as
      an all-knowing person. That's the problem: Are
      you going to teach or preach? Preaching is not
      important. Practicing is what's important. In fact,
      nobody is a teacher; we are all learners. Sometimes,
      we learn from the students themselves. So be humble
      and gently impart what you know. Say: `This is all
      I know; this what I'm hoping for. You try. You may
      even get it before me.' That kind of humility is important.

      "God bless you. OM Shanti, Shanti, Shanti."
