Hitopadesha Teachings on Knowledge



Of all things knowledge is most valued treasure because it cannot be stolen, given away or consumed.

Knowledge produces humility, which then leads to worthiness, when then leads to richness and happiness.

Knowledge of weapons is of no use in old age but the knowledge of books serves through out the life of a man.

Knowledge without pride is hard to be found.

Like a humble stream meeting the might ocean, knowledge introduces a man to men of power and wealth.
