Education is futile without wisdom

  • यथा खरश्चन्दनभारवाही भारस्य वेत्ता न तु चन्दनस्य ।
    एवं हि शास्त्राणि बहून्यधीत्य अर्थेषु मूढाः खरवद् वहन्ति ॥
  • yathā kharaścandanabhāravāhī bhārasya vettā na tu candanasya ।
    evaṃ hi śāstrāṇi bahūnyadhītya artheṣu mūḍhāḥ kharavad vahanti ॥
  • Those who have read the scriptures yet do not understand their inherent meaning are similar to a donkey that carries a load of sandalwood but does not know its worth.
