Only spiritual knowledge can destroy our miseries – Swami Vivekananda

Spiritual knowledge is the only thing that can destroy our miseries for ever; any other knowledge satisfies wants only for a time.
It is only with the knowledge of the spirit that the faculty of want is annihilated for ever; so helping man spiritually is the highest help that can be given to him.
He who gives man spiritual knowledge is the greatest benefactor of mankind and as such we always find that those were the most powerful of men who helped man in his spiritual needs, because spirituality is the true basis of all our activities in life.  
Next to spiritual comes intellectual help. The gift of knowledge is a far higher gift than that of food and clothes; it is even higher than giving life to a man, because the real life of man consists of knowledge.
Ignorance is death, knowledge is life.
Life is of very little value, if it is a life in the dark, groping through ignorance and misery.
Swami Vivekananda
