Description

This is not a book on formal education per se. Nor is it an academic treatise on education; it is a collection of writings by eminent contributors on various aspects of ‘education’ in its broadest and widest sense—especially with reference to Indian world-view and the teachings of Swami Vivekananda.

‘The ideal of all education, all training,’ said Swami Vivekananda, ‘should be this man-making. But, instead of that, we are always trying to polish up the outside. What use in polishing up the outside when there is no inside? The end and aim of all training is to make the man grow.’ This book attempts to discuss this ‘inside’ of education which is man-making. A collection of 50 writings on various aspects of education ‘in its widest sense’, this book presents the Indian
worldview of divinity of man and unity of existence. Compiled from the archives of The Vedanta Kesari, these writings deal with various aspects of education, particularly the key ideas of Yoga and Vedanta which are of great value to all educationists and students.

‘As long as I live, so long do I learn,’ said Sri Ramakrishna. This handy volume on education draws our attention to this fact through articles, stories and personal accounts of monks, teachers, students, scholars and commoners.
