Intelligence refers to the power to analyze things in their proper perspective, and knowledge refers to understanding what is spirit and what is matter. Ordinary knowledge obtained by a university education pertains only to matter, and it is not accepted here as knowledge. Knowledge means knowing the distinction between spirit and matter. In modern education there is no knowledge about spirit; they are simply taking care of the material elements and bodily needs. Therefore academic knowledge is not complete. Bhagavad-gita
"Knowledge is a
beautiful thing, but the use of knowledge in a good way is what makes for
wisdom. Learning how to use knowledge in a sacred manner, that's wisdom to me.
And to me, that's what a true Elder is."
-- Sun Bear, CHIPPEWA
