I 6. What does true education give us?

Education should inculcate  divine feelings in you. It should  enable you to understand that the  daily events occuring  in man's life are as per the Divine Will and that there is what is called "Eternal Truth" which  links man's life to the environment and community around him. Character, truth, good conduct and the ability to sacrifice are the essential components in any type of education. Devoid of these qualities, it becomes worthless.
Sathya Sai Baba, Summer Showers 1974
   
True education gives you humility and from humility you get deservedness and from deservedness you will get wealth and from wealth you will get dharma ( spiritual duty), and from dharma you will get happiness in this temporal world as well as in the spiritual world.
Sathya Sai Baba, Summer Showers 1974
