What is Education?

 Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man.

 The training by which the current and expression of will is brought under  control and  become fruitful is called education. 


 Real education is that which enables one to stand on his own legs.

 If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you havemore

 education than any man who has got by heart a whole library. 


 What Education is Not?

  [Education is] not an accumulation of words.... 

  [Education is] not the collecting of facts... 

  Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot       there,   undigested all your life.         

  Well, you consider a man as educated if only he can pass some examinations and         deliver  good lectures... 


 Source of Knowledge?

  Knowledge is inherent in man; no knowledge comes from outside; it is all inside; What

  we say a man "knows", should, in strict psychological language, be what he "discovers"

  or  "unveils"; what a man learns is really what he "discovers", by taking the cover off his

  own  soul which is a mine of infinite knowledge. 


Education and Mind?

  To me the very essence of education is concentration of mind, not the collecting of     facts.

  If I had to do my education over again, and had any voice in the matter, I would not      

  study facts at all. I would develop the power of concentration and detachment, and     then

  with a perfect instrument I could collect facts at will.
