Information is just an input and not knowledge: Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev

Mysuru, January 26:- “Information is just an input and it cannot be knowledge,” said the founder of Isha Foundation, Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev.

He was speaking after unveiling the statues of founders of Mahajana First Grade College, Ambale Subrahmanya Iyer and Rattehalli Ramappa at the college premises at Jayalakshmipuram here on Friday.

“Machines work efficiently and quickly than human beings. Everyone has a smartphone these days. If you ask Google, it comes up with all the information you need. But it gives you information, which cannot be called knowledge. When we were studying, calculators were being introduced then and we were thinking why do we have to do mathematics with difficulty. Today, people have become slaves of machines and technology. America has de-addiction centres for technology addicts,” he added.

“We first have to behave the way we want to. We have to make use of our memory power and thinking ability,” Jaggi Vasudev said.

President of the institution Vasudeva Murthy, Dr T Vijayalakshmi Muralidhar, T Muralidhar Bhagawat, B S Ravi Kumar, grandson of Rattehalli Ramappa Dr R N Ashok and others were present. (MR/SH)
