If the education you get turns you away from God, I do not know how it is going to help you and how you are going to help the world.

Nama Article 2nd October 2010


Mahathma Gandhi – Source: Young India, 4 August 1927

 

There is no greater punishment or misery for man than that his faith in God should be blasted. And I confess to a deep sense of sorrow that faith is gradually disappearing in the student world. When I suggest to a Hindu boy to have recourse to Ramanama, he stares at me and wonders  who Rama may be; when I ask a Musalman boy to read the Koran and fear God, he confesses his inability to read the Koran and Allah is a mere lip-profession.

 

How can I convince such boys that the first step to a true education is a pure heart?

 

If the education you get turns you away from God, I do not know how it is going to help you and how you are going to help the world.

 

Check out the special article in http://namadwaar.org/home.php Ram Naam, which had become part and parcel of the timid, shy boy, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, transformed him into Mahatma Gandhi.
