Message for the Day…. ” All scholarship and knowledge is useless if it is not accompanied by practice.”

It is not as if there are no individuals in the world who are well versed in sacred texts like Bhagavatha, but whatever they may have learnt and whatever be their scholarship, if they cannot put into practice at least a fraction of what they have learnt, they will simply be wasting their time. All scholarship and knowledge is useless if it is not accompanied by practice. Think of this analogy: If a donkey carries some fragrant materials on its back, can it become an elephant? You may have the strength to teach others because you have learnt from so many books. However, whatever you learn will become utterly useless if it is not put into practice. Indeed, when thoughts, words, and actions are consistent, one is called a mahatma (a noble one). This is also described as ‘the proper study of mankind is man’.
