"Knowledge Is Power"

By Anmol Gupta

What Knowledge Is?

"Knowledge is the light which destroys the darkness of ignorance".

Knowledge as the name suggest is originated from knowing. Knowing doesn't mean, only to know about the history, merits, demerits, pros and coins of something but also to continue the process of the research and development. As you can see that knowing is a verb not a noun. It is not a dead process where you can seek some facts and consider yourself as knowledgeable.

As said by Goethe "Knowledge is application". It echoes my view that to apply something first you have to know the theoretical part of it and then you have to do the practical part and it involves an infinite R&D (research and development.

I would like to clarify that knowledge, more often than not is considered as education but it is altogether a different ball game. Education can provide you a platform to become a man of knowledge but it isn't knowledge itself. Knowledge can come even without education. Man like Kabir Das, The famous Indian poet and mystic was thoroughly uneducated but his knowledge is impeccable and incredible and his understanding of life is extraordinary for such an ordinary person.

Why We Need Knowledge?

In my view "Breathing is necessary for life and knowledge for a great and happier life."

As known by great mystics and saints that life is a journey of soul for experience. Life hence, consists of events which lets you experience the different extremes of life. And from our conscious mind it is really difficult to understand the purpose behind an event that happens with us in our life. So to understand the purpose of your life knowledge is needed.

As said by Sydney J Harris "The whole purpose of life is to turn mirrors into windows."

And for this purpose the true and pure Knowledge is the only weapon in our armor.

What Knowledge Gives?

Knowledge gives understanding. It gives us the insight by which we can clear the dilemmas that we often face in our life. Knowledge gives courage to fight for the rights, for freedom and at the same time it teaches you how to be humble. In short knowledge gives WISDOM.

How Knowledge Is Power?

Knowledge can be considered as a substitute for power, not the power which enhances your ego, not the power which makes you exploit the underpowered, not the power which gives you the confidence to do sins, but the power which enables you to know your true self your destiny and the purpose of you life. Hence it is often said that Knowledge is power.
