Be and Make - In the process of achieving the objectives of True Education
Dr. Shivakumar S
Swamiji: Swami Vivekananda, Religion: Divinity in Man, True Education: All-round development, Manifestation: Self-Awareness
Education is used to refer both to a process and to a product. As a product ‘education’ is the sum total of what is received through learning – the knowledge, skill, ideas, values that are the outcomes of learning as a process, it refers to the act of developing these in someone else or in oneself. Therefore education is an all-round drawing out of the best in child and man – body, mind and spirit. Swami Vivekananda philosophy of education is a reflection of is general philosophy of life. He believed that a pure spiritual life, shown of superstitious beliefs and strange notions of religion, is the sure foundation of real education and culture. If perfection in the truest sense of the term is equated with divinity, then there is no difference between education and religion. At a particular state in the cultural cum-spiritual evolution of man, he attains a degree of excellence manifesting in him certain edifying virtues and graces and conducting himself in an ennobling manner in his relationship with his fellow-beings. This is the attainment of perfection in character. If this is pursued still further, his entire life, thought, and behavior express themselves in such a manner that he can be considered almost divine. Such are the saints and God men in this world, in whom education and religion do not have any separate identity, but they both become one and identified with each other. This is the ideal of true education and true religion.
