Importance of Learning (Chanakya Niti 4.5)

So much importance Chanakya gave to continuous learning. And indeed isn’t it relevant today more than ever?

 कामधेनुगुना विद्या ह्यकाले फलदायिनी।
प्रवासे मातृसदृशी विद्या गुप्तं धनं स्मृतम्॥

Transliteration:
 kāmadhenugunā vidyā hyakāle phaladāyinī।
pravāse mātṛsadṛśī vidyā guptaṃ dhanaṃ smṛtam॥
English Translation:
 Learning is like a cow of desire. It, like her, yields in all seasons. Like a mother,
it feeds you on your journey. therefore learning is a hidden treasure.
Hindi Translation:
विद्या अर्जन करना यह एक कामधेनु के समान है जो हर मौसम में अमृत प्रदान करती है. वह विदेश
में माता के समान रक्षक अवं हितकारी होती है. इसीलिए विद्या को एक गुप्त धन कहा जाता है.
