The spirit of learning is relentless

The spirit of learning is relentless

As I climbed down the stairs, reading the beautiful posters posted on the wall with impactful quotes of great men from across the globe, my eyes, mind, my heart, and soul, all got aligned as I came across these lines by Saint Ramakrishna:

“As long as I live, so long do I learn”.

The simple yet profound words held more than what was visible to the naked eye. How very true is this!!! Every cell of human existence has evolved over a period of time, with the ability to learn what is happening outside and inside SELF.

Can we exist without learning? What if we don’t learn? What does learning actually mean? Do we learn only consciously or does subconscious learning also take place? It seemed that my brain had been hit with a tornado, uprooting the questions embedded deep inside me, which were waiting to be answered, since I was trying to find, how to lead a more purposeful life.

Lo, behold! Before I could settle the avalanche of thoughts triggered by those words, I came across yet another neatly set row of words on another poster quoting Satya Nadella.

It read: “I am also defined by my curiosity and thirst for learning. I buy more books than I can finish. I sign up for more online courses than I can complete. I fundamentally believe that if you are not learning new things, you stop doing great and useful things.”

Screech and halt! My mind came to a stands till, the questions seemed to evaporate. Awestruck with the timespan of the canvas of quotes on learning that I just read – from 19th to 21st century – I was completely enthralled. I for a moment gently closed my eyes, totally absorbed in the realization that, engraved has been from hundreds of years, the spirit of learning in the very essence of human existence,


Taking a deep breath, smiling to myself and further enthused, I walked towards ‘SriBUILD: Sri Balaji University’s Initiative for Learning and Development’ ( Department of MDP & Consultancy); dedicated to meeting the aspirations of lifelong learners.
