At the time of the birth of his son Alexander entrusted his education to Aristotle. At that time, Aristotle was a young man of twenty-eight years.
When Alexander was a boy of thirteen, Aristotle came and took charge of his education at the invitation of King Philip. A victorious student of the greatest Guru. Many ancient historians believe that Aristotle’s teachings helped to build Alexander’s indomitable spirit and steely character. In fact one had a strong desire to conquer the whole world and dominate it.
Others wanted to discover new worlds of knowledge and manipulate them for mankind. King Philip also had deep respect for Aristotle. He respected him not only as his son’s teacher but also as a true scholar. Stazeira, the birthplace of Aristotle, was destroyed by some miscreants. Many people there were living in captivity.

Aristotle was a wise man on the one hand and a good teacher on the other hand. So Alexander had infinite respect for Guru. He used to say, I got this life from my father and learned from the Guru how to make this life worthwhile.

Alexander died suddenly in 323 BC. The life that had been living under the umbrella of the heroic student until now came to light. He got news from some loyal students that a conspiracy was started against him. Aristotle was not aware of the fate of Socrates. So he secretly left Athens and took refuge on the island of Houria. But Aristotle did not have to suffer the pain of this voluntary exile for long. He died in 322 BC.
