The soul being part and parcel of The Supreme Personality of Godhead has Cit – knowledge or cognizance potency in minute quantity – which is now covered over by ajnana or ignorance.Education means process of uncovering this ‘Cit’ potency that is dormant in every living entity.

“Pure love for Krishna is eternally established in the hearts of living entities. It is not something to be gained from another source. When the heart is purified by hearing and chanting, the living entity naturally awakens.”
The 6 friends of a good contemplator or introspective sage are “who, what, when, where, why and How”. By systematic cultivation of contemplation, applying these questions in relation to absolute truth our mind becomes tranquil, it gets permanent reality to hold on to. (This stage is called as ‘Sakshatkar’ or realisation of the Absolute Truth)
SB 1.1.2, verse ‘vedyaà västavam atra vastu çivadaà täpa-trayonmülanam….” says Lord Krishna is the absolute truth, he is the västava- vastu (the real object) and spiritual world is real situation we should be in. By holding on to these permanent realities mind gets pacified. To train oneself and others in this direction is the real purpose of education.
Education means following 3 things
|What (who)||How (when, where)||Why|
|Sambandh jnana||Abhidheya jnana||Prayojana jnana|
|To Know||To do||To be|
|Theory||Practical / Application||Conclusion / Realization|
(Information about self, God & others)
(Process of achieving the Goal)
|Goal / Objective
(End result to be achieved)
|Knowledge||Skills||Values / Qualities|
In short, education means to equip and engage oneself and others in constant up gradation of knowledge, skills and values of Krishna consciousness.
