On the occasion of Guru Purnima, megastar Amitabh Bachchan says the teacher-student tradition “transcends through generations”.

“Whoever they are, they are with respect and admiration… They are pedestal, they are above we are at feet, they look down to us, we bend in grace and acceptance…

“The Guru-Shishya, the teacher and the taught, are the oldest traditions of our varied and incredible culture… And it remains till today… It percolates, it transcends through generations, even through the transcendence of age and time…,” Bachchan posted on his blog.

The 72-year-old Bollywood icon, who is an inspiration for many budding actors said, our Guru’s bless us “learning and life”, “direction and cause”.

“Guru Poornima… A reverential day, when we remember our Guru’s, pay them obeisance, regard respect and seek blessings for guidance in our lives and life… They are our teachers, our parents our mentors our everything… They give, we receive… Blessings !!” he wrote.

“We chose our learned Guru’s, we admire respect and idolise them. They give us direction and cause. Teaching and guidance. Learning and life. They could be all and none, or none at all. They could be finite or abstract. Human or not human. My abstract pen, my natures tree, my innocent child, my parent, my Principal, my educator, my example… My everything …” he added.

The “Piku” star stressed that the Guru-Shishya tradition is something which we carry forward with each passing generation.

“Whoever they are, they are with respect and admiration… They are pedestal, they are above we are at feet, they look down to us, we bend in grace and acceptance…

“The Guru-Shishya, the teacher and the taught, are the oldest traditions of our varied and incredible culture… And it remains till today… It percolates, it transcends through generations, even through the transcendence of age and time…” he said.
