Dream Teacher : Buddha or Lord Shiva

You can choose any person from history to teach you any topic you want. Who’s your teacher, and what do they teach you? #Dailyprompt

Let me think of what I want to learn first.  I would like to learn about spirituality from someone in history.  I’m so disillusioned with all the books and websites which offers a lot of information.  But, what about teaching?  How would it feel being taught by someone who is ready to elaborate on the nuances would be really interesting, a different experience altogether.

I have wondered what makes people follow certain rules as prescribed by the spiritual leaders (doubt the genuineness).  I mean, does it mean anything?  Is there a logical or scientific reasoning behind it.  Like I know people who fast on certain days of the week,  or wear a certain colour on a certain weekday.  This, I refuse to believe to be spiritual reasoning.  There has to be some simple or basic reasoning behind it.

So, who can teach me such stuff.  Would it be ‘Buddha, the enlightened one’?  or will it be ‘Lord Shiva – the Universal Teacher’.
