III ii Duties and Responsibilities AS Parents

6. How can parents teach their children to use their education for the benefit of society?

There are innumerable persons in the world who are suffering from various physical and other disabilities. It is the duty of educated persons to serve them and help to relieve their suffering to the maximum extent possible. This is the best form of service to the Divine. There is pollution in the air, in the water we use and impurity in so many things. You must use the knowledge you acquire to purify what is impure. Service to society must become the primary purpose of education
