Dear Children of this Holy Nation -
Third Talk - 10
Thirdly, the distinguishing factor between other forms of life and the human being is intelligence, the mind. But then, even though endowed with this faculty, if nothing is done to unfold it, develop it and feed information into it, one becomes an illiterate fool. If no education is given, if the intelligence and mind remain the same, then one is no better than an animal. If you are illiterate, if you do not know even to count or sign your name, the potential of the faculty of intelligence remains dormant.
It is to be unfolded and made dynamic and active, and it must grow and progress. That is done by the teacher (the Acharya) in the school or maybe the Moulvi in the Madarasa of the Muslims. This academic instruction is important and man is made a real man through the faculty of thinking and knowing things. Therefore, ‘Acharya devo bhava’ – ‘Regard your teacher as God’ who has made you a real human being through knowledge. These three things we can understand—Matri devo bhava, Pitri devo bhava, and Acharya devo bhava.
