II 5. What is the state of the 'educated' man today?

The educated have no iota of the peace that the uneducated have! They live in greater discontent and misery and are tossed  about without a rudder in a sea of troubles. They do not know anything about the source of peace and ananda (bliss) that they carry within themselves; they allow the inner consciousness to go dry by neglect; they are not aware of the means to irrigate it with the waters of prema (love) and grow therein the fruits of prasaanthi (highest peace). They read books but do not correct their modes of thinking and living.
Sathya Sai Baba, 25 Dec 1961
