Education must result in the development of wisdom (Viveka) and humility (Vinaya). The educated person must be able to distinguish between the momentary and the momentous, the lasting and the effervescent. As an educated person, we must not run after glitter and glamour but must seek the good and golden. We must keep the body in good trim, the senses under strict control, the mind well within check, the intellect sharp and clear, unhampered by prejudices and hatreds, and the feelings untouched by egoism. We must know the Divine Self, Atma too, for that is the very core. That is the effulgence which illumines our inner and outer selves. We must also cultivate Vinaya (humility). As an educated person, we must be grateful to our parents, who with great sacrifice have given  all the facilities that we now enjoy.
