Nurturing Intellectual Warriors: A Nationalistic Approach

Swami Veereshananda Saraswathi

Abstract


Man enjoys his intellect more than an animal enjoys its senses. Thirst for knowledge is inherent in man and no one likes to be ignorant. Knowledge alone can remove ignorance. Sir Julian Huxley, renowned biologist defines the new goal of evolution at the human level as refinement of intellect which gives fulfilment. It is easy to train and purify our impure intellect, if we know the different aspects and functions of Buddhi. The pure intellect has many characteristics such as – Alertness, Discrimination, Determination, Subtlety, Steadiness, Maturity, Vastness, Simplicity, Sharpness, and Positivity. The intense and purer the intellect (Buddhi), the greater the perfection attained. That country is great which can produce more intellectual people in different fields. Intellectual strength (buddhibalam) alone can play a vital role in a nation’s progress. We need to process our psychic energy into - creative, constructive and making for happiness and all-round welfare. This kind of development is what makes education a blessing to society. That is the goal of India in our present condition when we are developing into a constructive, developed nation.
