Swami Vivekananda’s View on Education

According to Swamiji, "Education is the manifestation of the perfection already in man."

"The training by which the current and expression of will are brought under control and become fruitful is called education."

"All knowledge , secular or spiritual, is in the human mind. In many cases it is not discovered, but remains covered. The man from whom this veil is being lifted is the more knowing man; the man upon whom it lies thick is ignorant; and the man from whom it has entirely gone is all-knowing,omniscient."

"The very essence of education is concentration of mind."

"The character of any man is but the aggregate of his tendencies, the sum total of the bent of his mind. As pleasure and pain pass before his soul, they leave upon it different pictures, and the result of these combined impressions is what is called a man's character."

"We want that education by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one's own feet."
