“A true teacher would never tell you what to do. But he would give you the knowledge with which you could decide what would be best for you to do.”
― Christopher Pike, Sati
The advent of a prosperous new era lies not just in educating young minds but in teaching them to enlighten themselves.
As parents today, we want to give our children the world, but the secret lies not giving them the stars but in teaching them to fly, in making them able to reach for the stars and giving them the confidence to believe they can do so.
We at Sanskriti believe in broadening the horizons for our young saplings to grow and discover their own path and individuality. We try not to give them wings but to build the fire beneath their wings, to try to teach them to build the path they desire to reach beyond any known imaginations.
In a world of chaos, we need not to preach righteousness, but acceptance. The tolerance of differences is more important than degrees of intolerance we believe to be our due. For forbearance and patience are not weakness, they are not a chink in your armor; but the powerful shields which do not cause destruction in their wake but protect and spread peace.
Attainment of knowledge is the highest form of wisdom. This small statement in itself encompasses a world of knowledge. Because, what knowledge?!… true knowledge the right knowledge. Knowledge not just to know, but to learn. Because,
“Both read the Bible day and night, but thou read black where I read white.” – William Blake
So I plead, I plead to read white, to not let your mind be constrained by the black. Explore outside the box of the known black to the unconstrained white world.
“The attainment of knowledge is a never-ending process. When you gain knowledge, you know; you know that you know nothing, because even in knowing too much you understand that it is not nearly enough and never will be. Regard the attainment of knowledge as a passion to be lived, and not a duty to be completed, and only then will you find true joy.” In the words of the Albert Einstein
“Never regard study as a duty but as an enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later works belong.”
Knowledge on its own is nothing. The power lies in the application of useful knowledge. We may be the most knowledgeable of all, but we should be wise enough to know to apply the right knowledge, to share that knowledge because to share is to expand and to enlighten and an enlightened generation is our only hope for survival. Wisdom is not ridiculing the one less knowledgeable than you , but sharing with him what you know, and you may learn a thing or two.
To each and every individual I say, never let the student in you die. Do question. For to question is to ask, to ask is to know and knowledge is the only treasure which never exhausts.
With Best wishes for your quest of knowledge…
