Of all living beings, only a human is presented with the choice of action. Hence it becomes imperative for one to learn and make the correct choices in life. Educational institutions the world over only provide objective information. Making a person 'intelligent' or well informed in one or more subjects. Mere intelligence cannot ensure right action. This fact is exemplified by the problems of obesity, depression and stress among the intelligentsia. Instead one must build a powerful 'intellect' or the capacity to reason and analyse. The lecture distinguishes between intelligence and intellect at all levels of the personality. And provides a method to develop the intellect thereby enabling right choice of action.
