What is the single most important factor in the transformation of the individual and the society?

Without doubt, it is Education. But as yet, it has still not been explored to its full and utmost potential, resulting only in a fractured image and perception of what it means. To go beyond the obligatory demands from education, that is, the procurement of a job or respectable standing in society, we need to take a more integral approach.

Our series on Integral Education aspired towards this end and brings across different facets of education, all leading eventually to the desired transformation and fulfilment of the true ideal.

Excerpts from the True Teacher:

  • He (the teacher) will seek to awaken much more than to instruct; he will aim at the growth of the faculties and the experiences by a natural process and free expansion.
  • Books and programmes are of secondary importance, they are only a scaffolding, the building within is made of a different kind of bricks. A happy luminous consciousness within is the teacher’s asset, with that he achieves all, without it he fails always.
  • The moment one becomes a teacher, it is not that he has arrived. It is a fresh start, he opens a new page. He has much to learn. He is in a more advantageous position because he has opportunities to learn which other professional people do not have.
  • Twice blessed are those who have felt the call to be a teacher, for in its noblest dimensions this creative service reaches out to all humankind as an energy of evolution which bears fruit in worlds yet unborn.
  • True education feeds the soul, until it is well enough developed to come forward. The whole nature must be built around the awakened centre, built anew, with nothing, physical or vital,, mental or moral, sensational, emotional or aesthetic, neglected or forgotten.
  • Sri Aurobindo defines the teacher: “The teacher is not an instructor or task-master, he is a helper and a guide. His business is to suggest and not to impose. …..”
