vidyā vivādāya dhanaṃ

vidyā vivādāya dhanaṃ madāya śakti: pareṣāṃ paripīḍanāya |

khalasya sādhorviparītametajjñānāya dānāya ca rakṣaṇāya ||

 

A bad person uses his knowledge for (empty) argumentations, his wealth for egotistic actions, and his power for harming others. The opposite is true concerning a good person: He uses his knowledge, wealth, and power for providing to others knowledge, financial help, and protection, respectively.
