"Furthermore, we have not even to risk the adventure alone, for the heroes of all time have gone before us. The labyrinth is thoroughly known. We have only to follow the thread of the hero path, and where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god. And where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves. Where we had thought to travel outward, we will come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we will be with all the world". -- Joseph Campbell

              Traditional Wisdom

 

 

 

     SHIKSHA: LEARNING

 

 

 

 

 

     When children, O Brihaspati, giving names to objects, sent out VakТs first and earliest utterances, all (knowledge) that was excellent and spotless, treasured within their hearts, was disclosed through (VakТs) grace. (Rig Veda, 10.71.1)

 

 

 

 

     The student learns a fourth from his teacher, a fourth through his own intelligence, a fourth from is fellow pupils, and the remaining fourth in course of time (by experience).

 

 

 

 

     Wonderful indeed is this treasure of yours, O Bharati (goddess of learning)! It increases with expenditure and dwindles on hoarding!

 

 

 

 

     He that has not cultivated his intelligence but has merely heard of many things can scarcely understand the real import of the scriptures, like the spoon that has no perception of the taste of the soup it touches. (Mahabharata, СSabha ParvaТ, 54.1)

 

     I have seen that the knowledge derived by reasoning is of quite a different kind from the knowledge derived through meditation; and quite different from this again is the Knowledge that dawns by His revelation. (Sri Ramakrishna)

 

     There is only one purpose in the whole of life - education. (Swami Vivekananda)
