Education – What does it mean?

IN · · Leave a Comment
“Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education.” Martin Luther King Jr.

Seeing today’s world one really wonders, in what sort of educated and cultured society we are living and what kind of educated and cultured people are we surrounded by? In so called old days, educated people were less, but, they never behaved the way, the so called educated and cultured people do today. In olden day’s peoples lives were guided by principles and values, where as money and comforts are the only guiding factors today.

What sort of education are we getting? Is the education we are acquiring making us humans or is degrading us to animal humans? Education should help humans become divine and should result in a better society. But where is all that? We make tall claims that we are living in a very cultured, very broadminded, technically advanced and global world? But how far our thinking is global? All these are the questions we need to ask ourselves.

Education based on values and life guided by principles is what we need. Until and unless people give value to these things and try to inculcate them in our life the society will not progress. We see so many people who are called genius lying on the roads, ending up their lives in mental asylums. What is the reason? Why are the so called genius people becoming perverted?

The main reason because they lack the kind of education that is necessary for making their life meaningful. It is not enough if we have education that will help us earn few rupees and lead a comfortable life. We need education that will enlighten us, elevate us, bring more maturity in our thinking and helps us to bring out the divine qualities in us. May we all be blessed enough to have that kind of education.
