Sathya Sai Baba on Education
The education these days is not along the right directions. Human life is dedicated to worldly pleasures. By dedicating one’s life to worldly pleasures, man wastes his life. Today, a man who bought a car foolishly considers himself to be the car. A driver is necessary for the car. The car runs because of the driver. But nobody bothers about the driver. The body is like a chariot and the horse which pulls the chariot is the Self. The chariot has no strength of its own. Its movements depends on the horses that pull the chariot. Unfortunately modern education lays emphasis on decorating the chariot i.e. the body. To follow the path of truth, one should have Atmic feelings.
The students are the producers. They should produce good products, virtues and involve in action. Students are those who produce all the things in the world and transport them. But the students should possess spiritual strength in addition to worldly matters. The worldly matters and spiritual matters are like negative and positive. Only when these two are integrated, the world would move along the right path. Matter is inert and energy is power. When there is no power, then matter will not have any strength. Therefore the spiritual path is most necessary to the students. Sathya Sai Baba, Man Management
