Selection of a Medical Teacher

Selection of a Medical Teacher

            An ideal preceptor is he who is well grounded in scriptures, equip­ped with practical knowledge, wise, skilful, whose prescriptions are infallible, who is pious, who has all the necessary equipments for treatment, who is not deficient in respect of any of the sense organs, who is acquainted with human nature and the rationale of treatment, whose knowledge is not overshadowed by the knowledge of other scriptures, who is free from vanity, envy and anger, who is hard working, who is affectionately disposed towards his disciples and who is capable of expressing his views with clarity. A preceptor pos­sessed of such qualities infuses medical knowledge to a good disciple as the seasonal cloud helps bringing about good crop in a fertile land.

            One should approach such a preceptor and respect him like fire, god, king, father and master with all cares. After having obtained the knowledge of the entire scripture, through his blessings one should strive again and again for achieving depth in scriptures, clarity of expressions, comprehension of the various concepts and power of oration.
