Spiritual Business Vs Spiritual Education

 

Generally the human beings do spiritual business with God and are not for the spiritual education. A school is a centre of education and a shop is a centre of business. There are many shops but few schools. Majority is for business and minority is for education. You are sacrificing the work and wealth to achieve the fruit in the spiritual business. The fruit you receive from the business is not permanent because you have to go to the shop again and again to purchase the commodity. In the education also, service to the preacher (susrusha) and sacrifice of wealth (Guru Dakshina) is done as in the case of business but the fruit is permanent.

 

Once you have acquired the knowledge and come out, the knowledge stays with you permanently. You need not go to the school again and again as in the case of the shop. The business is referred in Gita (Parasparam Bhavayantah). The education is also mentioned (Tat Viddhi Pranipatena). The preachers should become the centers of spiritual education. They should not become the centers of spiritual business like priests and astrologers.
