of Kahlil Gibran reverberate: “No man can reveal to you aught but that
which already lies half asleep in the dawning of our knowledge. The
teacher who walks in the shadow of the temple, among this followers,
gives not of his wisdom but rather of his faith and his lovingness .
If he is indeed wise he does not bid you enter the house of wisdom,
but rather leads you to the threshold of your own mind.” – (The

According to Jiddu
Krishnamurti , the purpose of education is to bring about freedom,
love, “ the flowering of goodness” and the complete
transformation of society , education is educating the whole person
(all parts of the person); educating the person as a whole (not as an
assemblage of parts); and educating the person within a whole (as part
of society, humanity, nature, etc.) from which it is not meaningful to
extract that person. Thus, education is not about preparation for only
a part of life (like work) but is about preparation of the whole of
life and the deepest aspects of living.
