Beyond Education

Knowledge is not Understanding. Understanding results from experience plus watching. Knowledge can be borrowed whereas Understanding is unique to the journey of each individual.

Scientists gain knowledge, generally without understanding the consequences of its use. Buddhas attain to understanding; their footsteps leave no disturbance.

Understanding is supreme knowledge.
