Those who have obtained vidia, and then used that vidia to help others in humanitarian way, have understood the true meaning of vidia....

what is the meaning of this tukk?

What you would normally suppose the meaning to be would be: 

People who vichar vidia (think over or study education) are parupkari (helpers of others).

But, for whatever weird reason, Prof. Sahib Singh inverts the words and claims this as the meaning:

People who become parupkari, think of them as having become a person who vichars vidia.

Another perspective is:

One person has read all the dharmic Granths, BUT does not help people who have fallen on hard times.

Another person has NOT read any dharmic Granths, but goes out of his way to help people who have fallen on hard times.

So, out of the two, who falls in to the category of ‘Vidya veechari’?

The first person has read the Vidya, but not acted up on the teachings.

The second person has NOT read the Vidya, but is acting on the teachings.

So, we could say that the second person has done the veechar of Vidya, rather than the first person.

This could be taken as an inverted meaning, but it is a perspective nevertheless...

Also, I’m trying to upload images of four steeks, which give an explanation. For some reason, I’m having an issue with trying to upload the digital pages...
