MESSAGE TO STUDENTS
Sri Swami Chidananda
(Lecture delivered by Sri Swami Chidanandaji Maharaj at the 1st Zonal Orissa Divine Life Conference at Khurda Road on 1st December 1974)
O Children of Immortality!
In brief I wish to give you the essence of your culture, the ancient message which your ancestors have given to you, especially to the young and especially to the students.
I want to tell you very clearly that the need of the students and young people was well known to our great sages of wisdom.
And so they gave a due place to the young people in human society.
They gave a special set of principles in the concept of their life, and they formulated a special set of principles for the young people to follow.
Before I try to lay before you their concept of student life, their principles for young people to follow, I give you four sentences, which I want every young man and woman, all students, to memorise and keep as guidelines for your life.
They are four brief sentences and they contain a very important message.
These four brief sentences which I want you to listen carefully and keep in your memory are as follows : -
“When wealth is lost nothing is lost.
When health is lost something is lost.
When character is lost everything is lost.
A person without character is not a man but an animal”.
