Instructions from Bhishma

Bhismadeva instructed that at least nine minimum qualifications should be there for a civilized society. One should not get angry. He should not lie. He should equally distribute his wealth. He should forgive. He should beget children in his legitimate wife. He should be pure in mind, hygienic in body. He should not be inimical to anybody. He should be simple and he should be responsible and support his servants or subordinates. Anything less than this is uncivilized according to Bhismadeva. So where is this basic education? This Krishna consciousness movement is meant to provide and inspire qualified brahmanas to spread the spiritual education around the world to make the people happy. So the need today is for actual, suitable education.
