In his two-hour long lecture Sarma said that modern education was subject oriented in which a student does not have the right to study the disciplines which emanates from his heart and inner self. Quoting Swami Vivekananda and Sri Aurobindo, the Sahitya Akademi winner translator explained the importance of building solid foundations for education. He said if the foundation was strong, it would learn anything in the world. Diganata Biswa Sarma also explained the various aspects of yoga which is a methodical effort with the objective of self-perfection. He said that potentially within a self could lead to the union with the entire universe. Quoting Sri Aurobindo, the eminent speaker said that education is the manifestation of self. During his speech Diganta Biswa Sarma spoke about the essential qualities required for an ideal teacher as espoused by Swami Vivekananda.
