    In our education system emphasis should be given to moral education and the inculcation of idealism – not only philosophy and traditions. The practice of morality should be the most important subject in the syllabus at all levels.
    Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar

    We should remember that morality, spirituality, and a happy blending of occidental extroversial science and oriental introversial philosophy is the very foundation of our education.

    Special importance should be attached to children’s education because today’s child is tomorrow’s citizen. The receptive capacity of a child is great, but to enhance the receptivity the method of education should be thoroughly psychological.
    Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar

    We have to keep in view three fundamentals before imparting education. The first is that education must always be based on factuality. The second fundamental is that education must awaken the thirst for knowledge in the students’ minds. The third fundamental of education is that teachers and students should have a balanced mind, unaffected, unassailed by unimportant entities.
    Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar

    A thirst for knowledge must be awakened, and, to quench that thirst, proper education must be given. Only then will education be worthwhile and develop the body, mind and ideals of the student.

    Children are by nature most inclined towards play, so a thirst for knowledge will have to be awakened in children through the medium of play – children should be educated through play methods. Children are also by nature inclined to listen to fantasies and stories. Through stories children can easily be taught the history and geography of various countries, and they may also be taught the initial lessons of how to practice universalism in their lives. Children love play and stories almost equally, so in their case the two should be equally utilized.
    Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar

    Educated are those who have learnt much, remembered much and made use of their learning in practical life. These virtues I call ‘education’. For such an education, mere knowledge of the alphabet is not very essential. It should, however, be accepted that literacy is extremely useful in recollecting what one has already learned.
    Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar
