Mahamoha vs. Mahavidhya*

In Sanskrit or hindi they call a high school as vidyalaya college as mahavidyalaya and university as the visvavidyalaya , “vidya’’ meaning knowledge ‘’alaya’’ meaning a place , ‘’maha’’ meaning great , ‘’visva’’ meaning universal or university but actually it seem that they should call it moha vidyalaya ‘’place of teaching moha illusion’’ or maha moha or it says here Maha mohalaya because they are training people how to be mad after after material life without giving any information that we are the spirit soul , material knowledge is necessary but material knowledge without understanding the spiritual knowledge is useless because such material knowledge will be used for ignorance.
