A teacher is considered the maker of destiny of a nation. He/she has a two-fold identity, that of being an educator and a life-long learner. As an educator, a teacher needs to be pedagogically sound while as a life-long learner a teacher needs to be a philosopher and have a sound knowledge of Educational Philosophy. The knowledge of Philosophy equips the teacher with the faculty of weltanschauung thereby polishing the acumen and refining teaching skills. It won‟t be an exaggeration to say that Philosophy and Pedagogy complement as well as supplement each other. The present paper reflects upon core teaching skills in the light of prominent Pramanas encompassed in Epistemology of some major schools of Indian Philosophy and also throws light on how these skills are interrelated to various Pramanas besides giving valuable suggestions pertaining to the use of same in the field of Teaching and Pre-service Teacher Education programme.
