Longs to reach the Source of knowledge

The Catholic principal of St. Vincent’s High School in Poona, the Reverend E. R. D’Souza, sent a letter to Baba saying that since Baba had once been a student of that institution, it would be a pleasure to have him present at their inter-faith Thanksgiving service to mark the school’s centenary that October. Baba did not attend, but he did send this message on 27 September 1967:

Schools help sincere students to equip themselves with knowledge and to become worthy citizens of society. And those students are wise who take full advantage of the educational institutions and their facilities.

But this knowledge is not the be-all and end-all of learning. And there comes a time when one longs to reach the Source of knowledge. The journey to this Source can only be undertaken when one learns to love in all simplicity and honesty the One Whom the pride of intellect veils.

When mind soars in pursuit of the things conceived in space, it pursues emptiness. But when man dives deep within himself, he experiences the fullness of existence.
