My First Teachers

My first teachers mean the world to me, because their love for me has been eternal and unconditional! Whatever I am today, it’s all because of them. They are my first teachers who taught me all the basic things: like A, B, C, D;
Hindi and Tibetan script; and 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. In my life, I will never forget them and whatever they did for me. I feel so lucky that I got such wonderful and grateful teachers in my life. They have nurtured me with immense love and care which I will be forever grateful to them. I have them always by my side during thick and thin times. Life wouldn’t be the same without their guidances, love, and care. They teach us with their heart out. Such teachers are like god in disguise. They have recruited me to become a good human being. Starting from 2006 to now so far I have tried to live up to their expectation and hopefully I can become a good human being. It was their dream to see me as a good human being and I am living their dream to become a good human being. I will be forever thankful and grateful to my first teachers.
