grahaa urjaa hutayo vyanto vipraaya matim (9/4 Yajurveda)
O men, the one who enhance their strength, please bless us with knowledge of all kinds.
Scholars who incessantly contemplate on acquiring strength and knowledge should also consider it their moral duty to impart knowledge to the ignorant, so that these lesser mortals can develop their mental faculties. This would automatically lead to the latter’s self-development and spiritual progress. Similarly, ignorant and naive people should try to acquire maximum knowledge from the knowledgeable ones.
