ASSIMILATED FIVE IDEAS AND MAKE THEM YOUR LIFE
To the Americans a century ago he said that the only value of Knowledge is in strengthening and disciplining of the mind. By education, he meant not just a mass of information that " runs riot undisgested' all through our life. Information running riot is a common phenomenon today in universtities and colleges. It is " assimilation of... ideas," Vivekananda pointed out, that creates great personalities:
" If you have assimilated five ideas and made them your life and character, you have more education than any man who has got by heart a whole library. If education were identical with information, the libratires would be the greatest sages in the world and encyclopaedias the Rishis "
- Swami Vivekananda
