For Students

"You have to be educated so that you become a really beautiful, healthy, sane, rational human being, not a brutal man with a very clever brain, who can argue and defend his brutality"

"The moment you are very clear about what you want to do, things happen. Life comes to your aid - a friend, a relation, a teacher, a grandmother, somebody helps you. …..... if you say, "This is what I really want to do and I am going to pursue it", then you will find that something miraculous takes place"

I wonder if we have ever asked ourselves ...
    I wonder if we have ever asked ourselves what education means. Why do we go to school, why do we learn various subjects, why do we pass examinations and compete with each other for better grades? What does this so-called education mean, and what is it all about? This is really a very important question, not only for the students, but also for the parents, for the teachers, and for everyone who loves this earth. Why do we go through the struggle to be educated? Is it merely in order to pass some examinations and get a job? Or is it the function of education to prepare us while we are young to understand the whole process of life?

Life is going to be very difficult ...
    Life is going to be very difficult my friend. It can tear you in many directions. There are a great many so-called temptations - biological, social, and you can be torn apart by the cruelty of society. Of course you are going to have to stand alone

if my father is against it ...
    Questioner: However much I may want to be an engineer, if my father is against it and won't help me, how can I study engineering?
Will You be like the rest of the World?

The New Generation ... 
   I am sure you have often heard from politicians, from educators, from your parents and from the public that you are the coming generation. But when they talk about you as a new generation, they really do not mean it because they make sure that you conform to the older pattern of society. They really do not want you to be a new, different kind of human being

And should not education help you to find out what you really love to do ...        And should not education help you to find what you  really love to do so that from the beginning to the end of your life you are working at something which you feel is worth while and which for you has deep significance? Otherwise, for the rest of your days, you will be miserable. Not knowing what you really want to do, your mind falls into a routine in which there is only boredom, decay and death. That is why it is very important to find out while you are young what it is you really love to do; and this is the only way to create a new society.
