What is the goal of Education?

Why should we go through long years of education? Is it only to obtain a degree, so that we may get a job and earn high salary? Or is the goal of education much more?

Swami Vivekananda gave us the answer in a phrase “Man-making education.”

In this post of ‘Vivekananda Way’ for Youth, we explore Swami Vivekananda’s answer in greater detail.

Adopting Swami Vivekananda’s vision of education into your own life

In this post, we explored Swami Vivekananda’s vision of man-making education in brief.
Over the next four posts, we will dive deeper into each of the four aspects —
(i) affirming one’s infinite possibilities, (ii) building one’s character & personality, (iii) developing one’s career worthiness, and (iv) making a contribution to society, in far greater detail.

The aim is to apply and integrate Swami Vivekananda’s vision into our day-to-day lives.

As a first step in this journey of applying this vision into our own lives, we suggest that you use the “thinking questions” below, to reflect on and develop your present vision of your own life:
