Education and Neo-Humanism {purely Original talk}


25 May 1985, Kalikata.

You know, there is an infinite wont of all living beings to expand its physical arena, and for this purpose, rather, because of this ailment, it is nothing but a sort of ailment, to exploit others, they forget their interest of other living beings.

You know just now I said that there is inherent wont of all living beings, both humans beings and animals.

In case of human beings, there is another wont, another inborn instinct, and that is to increase, to expand in psychic arena also.

So unlike other animals, human beings have got one wont towards the Goal so that they goad there physical longings unto spiritual longings, unto spiritual aspirations.

Other animals cannot do it, but for because of its psychic wont they exploit others in psychic level also and this exploitation in psychic level is more dangerous than the physical one.

So that there may not be any intellectual extravaganza or any physical subjugation, human beings require proper training both physically and mentally. This is what is called Education – properly training the physical existence and also the psychic one.

Because of this want of sufficient training in proper time, there remains no co-relation, no adjustment between inner view and outer view.

Sometimes they are very sincere in vocal field but there remains not an iota of sincerity in inner world, in internal world, and this is what happens in modern world.

The existence of both individual and collective, the existence has become one-sided that is, it has lost its balance. For this what we require most is a proper system of Education.

Just to show their sincerity of purpose, just to show that they are developed human beings, sometimes they speak of disarmament.They say that there should check and control over the manufacturing of deadly weapons. They say like these vocally and express this idea vocally, but internally they remain ready for worst weapons or more deadly weapons just to keep others under their structure in physical sphere.

It is nothing but a very bad type of brutality.

If this physical wont, you see there have been one leader, once upon a time, the leader said, “to preach the gospels of peace & keep your powder dry.” This is what happens today.

You may say, this physical longing or rather this physical wonts should be diverted towards psychic longings, and hence it is diverted towards psychic longing by proper mundane education, that will suffice.

In that case there remains the fear of psychic subjugation. So the remedy lies elsewhere.

Yes, we should be goaded by human feelings, human sentiments, human ideas, no doubt it is good, they may serve has a moral check in this competition of weapons, but it is not the last word, has it cannot check the internal fighting, internal this type of infighting amongst human beings.

For this purpose, we should have two-fold approach -

One is, for the purpose of training this turbulent mind, what is to be done?

One is to get proper Education, one is to be imparted with proper Education in, not general Education but in the gospel or in the idea of Neo-Humanism, it will help human being to save this mind and at the same time Spiritual practice should go on for a proper psychic remoulding, this is what require most, there is no alternative – Nánya Panthá Vidyate Yanáya.
