Does a kid realize why he is being attracted to the butterfly, to the toy, to the rainbow, to the mother’s breast, to anything? Does the kid realize? Like an animal he is just pulled along by his deep tendencies. He is an animal, and that is why education is needed. Education is needed so that the animalistic tendencies of the child can be either neutralized or channelized.

It is another matter that education usually goes wrong: instead of deconditioning the child, education mostly results in piling up even more conditioning on the child’s psyche. But education nevertheless is very, very necessary, education both in the worldly way, where you teach the child about science, history, geography, mathematics and such things; and education of the self. Both are greatly important.
