Subhashita Teachings

Ascetics who angrily teach others not to lose their tempers is like penniless alchemists teaching others the secret of becoming rich.

A student gains a quarter portion of knowledge from his teacher, a quarter of it from one’s own intelligence, a quarter from fellow students, and a quarter from time (experience). Subhashita
