748) Whether I know what the principle of living in gurukula is! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!

———————— Then upakrame avasane. In the beginning the students should come and offer obeisances to the lotus feet of guru. This is begin. Adau gurv-asrayam. Yasya prasadad bhagavat-prasadah **. This is the principle. If you offer your respectful obeisances to guru, he becomes pleased. Anyone, even one is offender, if he comes and offers obeisances to the superior guru, then even there was offense, he forgets. Father. Father of… The son may be offender, but when he comes and offers his respect to the father, he forgets. So that should be done regularly, suyantritah, just like machine. As soon as one sees guru, immediately he must offer obeisances. Beginning, end also. When he comes to see guru he must offer obeisances, and when he leaves that place he must offer obeisances. And in the in-between, coming and going, he should learn from the guru Vedic understanding. This is the principle of living in gurukula. ——————————-
