Education is a noble means to awaken human beings’ true character, pursue learning with humility and liberate one from the limitations of thought, feeling and action. Education leads one to achieve worldly and transcendental happiness. The ancient saying maps this thought:

विद्या ददाति विनयं विनयाद् याति पात्रताम् ।
पात्रत्वात् धनमाप्नोति धनात् धर्मं ततः सुखम् ॥
(हितोपदेश, कथामुख, 6)

Education makes one humble; humility begets worthiness worthiness creates wealth and enrichment; enrichment leads to right conduct righteous conduct brings contentment.
