quite a large number of people maybe at
MIT in particular they have quiet a very developed intellect in a particular area
let’s say you know math or physics or biology whatever they’re working on and
the intellect is very developed and controlled in that area but that
frequently does not correspond to the intellect also being developed in other
areas which on a human level might be even more important so how does that
happen you said that in the MIT people have developed their intellects in
certain directions so that is why at the beginning of this discourse I emphasized
that you need to understand the importance of this to your life you see
it is lack of this spiritual knowledge that created a lopsided Ness and very
often people have not been exposed to this knowledge so that creates this
lopsidedness when it comes to education education is considered as only
education related to the phenomenal world but there is another aspect that
is so important that we are neglecting when I speak to managers I bring it to
their awareness that you realize that your ability to function as a manager
doesn’t just depend upon your knowledge but on the extent to which you can
manage your own mind even psychology has got the term emotional intelligence so
while doing your MBA was it not relevant to understand how to manage the mind
that aspect has been neglected we keep on developing met
real education we ignore this so we have got engineer making education we have
got doctor making education finally money making education out of it all you
get money but we don’t have human making education and that is so important so
it’s a question of understanding its importance and then if we give it a
priority in our lives we will spend time on it and when we spend time on it the
brilliant people of MIT it will not take them long to grasp this and then utilize
it for achieving fulfillment in their lives
