Hello, my name is Diya and I am taking part in the eYogi Gurukul 201 course. I was always so fascinated about cultures and traditions, so I joined eYogi Gurukul. Before I didn’t know much things about Hinduism but now, I know so many things.
What I wanted to use in my life is the 5 qualities of a student.
There is a Sanskrit sloka which describes the 5 qualities of a student. All students should follow this mantra in their life.
काक चेष्टा, बको ध्यानं, स्वान निद्रा तथैव च ।
अल्पहारी, गृहत्यागी, विद्यार्थी पंच लक्षणं ॥
Kaak Cheshta, Bako Dhyanam, Swan Nindra Tathaiwa Cha।
Alpahari, Grihtyaagi, Vidyarthi Panch Lakshnam॥
1. Perseverance or efforts of a crow
You should always try hard and think outside the box like a crow getting water from the pot.
2. Concentration of a Heron
You should have concentration and patience on the thing you are doing like a heron waiting for the fish in the pond.
3. Always be alert like a Dog
You should always be alert like a dog who is alert even while sleeping.
4. Light eater
You shouldn’t eat heavily to keep yourself healthy and active.
5. Ready to leave home
When you grow to the right age, you shouldn’t depend on your parents for livelihood.
I have learnt so much from eYogi Gurukul and I can’t wait to learn more.
