Question: How long does one need to continue with integral studies, or is it an ongoing process?
Answer: A person needs to develop as long as he lives. Thus, it’s forbidden to stop the process of his education and upbringing. How is it possible to stop caring about him if he continues to develop?
This process needs to continue his whole life until the moment when a person is not able to participate physically. After all, each one able to participate in this huge system is part of mankind. And if we leave even one person without attention, then this tiny cog wheel will be ejected from this huge mechanism and will disturb its movement. Thus, we teach a person to constantly keep himself in this state in order to be an active part of this huge mechanism of civilization.
