THE PURPOSE OF EDUCATION.

Posted on at


Nelson Mandela so truly said:“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”.

In this universe everything is blessed with little knowledge to lead a progressive respective life. Animals and birds are given with little knowledge in order to get food and shelter but for the man just getting food and shelter is not enough. The main purpose of education of a man is to cram how to get a good living or to gain the means to earn more thriving and then to delight in life plentifully.

God has given resources to men but it is the man who has used these resources in effective way like God Almighty has made steel but it’s the man who has used this steel to make sword, weapons and many more things. Al Mighty God has created clay and water but man with the education has built castles. God has created the darkness of night and he ornate night with stars and moon while man has made lamps. As it has been said that:

“The whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows"

Man has utilized his knowledge in positive way.

But if we take a different view of education, we shall have to see all things as in some way heavenly, or leading heavenwards. For, education will not, then mean drawing out only those faculties which make us prosperous in mature ways, but drawing out only those abilities which make us superior people fitted for an eternal rather than a simply transitory existence.

Today’s education means the mutual and discrete shaping of man through hardships and struggle. Life of man is not easy and unfluctuating, man has to suffer and encounter his hardships with the use of education as the main difference between men and animal is the weapon of education which makes him superior over beasts . At the end I must say:

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself”
