Abstract: Individual and collective spiritual growth is intimately linked with both study and action. Inner qualities and attitudes as well as outward activity and service mutually reinforce each other. The current phase of the Divine Plan brings into sharp focus this interplay. The teacher becomes the learned, as the learned becomes the teacher. Scholarship is seen in a new light, as Divine Revelation is acknowledged as a source of knowledge. The Writings contain rich imagery of the interaction between the spiritual and social aspects of civilization, between the scholar and the Plan. [Abstract taken from conference program.]
