In his divine address on October 14, 1964, Swami highlighted the need for discrimination, through a short narration.
How far can the learning which you acquire in schools and through books take you? There was a wife who was given a cheque-book so that she might reimburse herself from the bank account.
She signed every cheque, “Your loving wife” and wondered why they were dishonoured !
There must be adaptability, recognition of changed circumstances, awareness of the relative value of things, discrimination between the real and relatively real.
