Often Swami has referred to students as ‘His properties’. In one of His Summer Shower Discourses, Swami says, “Vidhyarthi (student) is the one who contributes substantially to the welfare and the well being of society. He is: vidya + arthi, a true seeker of learning. Students should realize that their life span is fast melting away like ice, whether they care to improve or not. The life a person lives as a student is the foundation for the life he will lead later as a citizen. It is only when a student lives a life characterized by peace and self-control that he will have a peaceful and contented life later as a citizen.”
