IV i Educational Institutions as Educators

3. What happens when money becomes the goal of education?

When earning money is held as the goal, the system fosters falsehood and injustice, it restricts the vision to family and community and brings in its train, anxiety, sorrow and hatred.
Sathya Sai Baba, 5 Feb 1981
Do you require to strive and struggle so much and study just to fill this small belly? You go madly after earning money. There is nothing great in earning money. Bandits and thieves are earning money in huge amounts. Even the beggar in the street isĀ  earning well.Do you have to study something special for earning this amount? Why must you study? You must study to acquire wisdom and not wealth and prosperity. Wealth will come and go. He who aspires for wealth will not foster character.
Sathya Sai Baba, Summer Showers 1996
