What is "Knowledge"?

Knowledge is very essential to enrich our life to attain utmost objective of being a human. Great men are great only because of their "Knowledge"!

Knowledge is nothing but knowing of facts and clearing off the illusions that normally all the people have. Knowledge can be acquired by the way of education and experience what we have in our daily walk of life.

Knowledge will purify our mind and would help to abstain ourselfs from the negative activities. All the men have thier own belief, opinions, illusion etc. Knowledge used to analyse those and exposes what is good and what is not good. It develops the inner-consiousness.

The point to be noted is "Knowledge has no limitation". It is just knowing of things and we can be going on adding it up and up. But what is the use of just adding it up? We have to implement it in daily walk of life.

Knowledge has to be used to spread humanity, sprituality, love and commonness across the world.

Here is a quote of Swami Vivekananda. This one quote itself clearly states what knowledge is?

“The goal of mankind is knowledge ... Now this knowledge is inherent in man. No knowledge comes from outside: it is all inside. What we say a man 'knows', should, in strict psychological language, be what he 'discovers' or 'unveils'; what man 'learns' is really what he discovers by taking the cover off his own soul, which is a mine of infinite knowledge.”
- Swami Vivekananda
