True Education   by Prof. P.K.Keshap

in Business / Entrepreneurship    (submitted 2011-07-03)

Bring light to the poor; and bring more light to the rich, for they require it more than the poor. Bring light to the ignorant, and more light to the educated, for the vanities of the education of our time are tremendous.
Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man.
Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs rot there, undigested, all your life. We must have life-building, man-making, character making assimilation of ideas. If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library.
We want that education by which character is formed, strength of the mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one's own feet.
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.
Concentration is the essence of all knowledge. Nothing can be done without IT. 90% of the thought force is wasted by the ordinary human being, and therefore he is constantly committing blunders; the trained man or mind never makes a mistake. The thoughts have been given by great Swami Vivekananda who Mr. Rockfeller - business doyen of America once asked "what is God" and he answered "Man is God. Serve man and you will serve God." This prompted Mr. Rockfeller to finance the project of Dr. Baurlog - the Noble Prize Winner to conduct experiments in Africa and make the land fertile so that human beings may get grains grown and food may become available to them.
The entrepreneurs need the kind of the education as visualized by Swami Vivekananda and develop an empathy for living human beings as displayed by Mr. Rockfeller- the great American Entrepreneur. Developing this kind of personal traits is the self-responsibility of the entrepreneur.
a) Educare- to nourish b) Educure- to lead forth c) Educatum- act of teaching
Sanskrit Origin- a) Skis shah:- To discipline

What is not education?
1) Becoming only literate is not education.
2) Getting a degree is not education.
3) Gaining knowledge.
4) Learning new skills.
