If a man clings tenaciously to truth he ultimately realizes God.
Without this regard for truth, one gradually loses everything.

I say therefore to the unmarried and widows, It is
good for them if they abide even as I.

But if they cannot contain, let them marry: for it is
better to marry than to burn.

Some noteworthy quotes of Baba on Education:

Education

  • Living with God is education. Living for God is Service. Living in God is Realization. Unity is Divinity.
  • Character is the most precious gift of education.
  • True education is not for a mere living, but for a fuller and meaningful life.
  • Virtue is the sign of the educated person. This is what makes education worthwhile.
  • Education should build character. Its is Truth and Truth alone, that is one's real friend, relative. Earning money cannot be the purpose of education.
  • Base all educational efforts on building up of the character of the students, and then you can confidently think of raising on in the super-structure of curricula.
  • Acquiring good qualities can be the only purpose of education.
  • Peace can only be won the hard way, by eliminating violence and greed from the hearts of individual.
  • Education must remove hatred between the pilgrims on the various roads to God.
  • Politics without principles, Education without character, Science without humanity, and Commerce without morality Are not only useless, but positively dangerous.
  • Education softens the heart. If the heart is hard, one cannot claim to be educated.
  • Knowledge that is not put into practice is like food that is not digested.

Sri Prashant,

one of his very popular quote is very profound. Infact, all his sayings are like bullet, they hit the reader directly without any complications. Simple to the core

The end of wisdom is freedom.
The end of culture is perfection.
The end of knowledge is love.
The end of education is character.

Knowledge implies subject and object.
But experience is non-terminal, eternal.

God doesn't easily appear in the heart of a man who feels himself to be his own master.
But God can be seen the moment His grace descends. He is the Sun of Knowledge.
One single ray of His has illumined the world with the light of knowledge.
That is how we are able to see one another and acquire varied knowledge.


The Gospel of Sri Ramakrishna


2220


The mind is Atman.


D.: In the book “Who am I?” you have said the Heart is the seat of
the mind. Is it so?
M.: The mind is Atman.
D.: Is it Atman itself or its projection?
M.: The same.
