Rookie Reader of Vedanta 2 The Teacher

This section makes a brief note on who is a teacher and what motivates a teacher. Everything here comes from Swami Ranganathananda's lecture and from Swami Nikhilananda's writings.

"The Upanishads stress the method of knowledge more than that of formal worship. The truth is to be realized by hearing about it from a qualified teacher, reasoning about it in one's own mind, and lastly by contemplating it."  p. 82  The Upanishads, A New Translation by Swami Nikhilananda, Volume 1, Advaita Ashrama Publication.
The link to my audio notes is as below.
