Knowledge and Wisdom from an early Buddhist Perspective

Knowledge is quantity and wisdom is quality. Knowledge is a means and wisdom is an end. Knowledge has limits and wisdom does not. Knowledge can be imparted and wisdom has to be cultivated. One may lose knowledge but not wisdom.

Buddhism makes a clear distinction between knowledge and wisdom. It identifies knowledge as factual information and practical skills. In Theravada discourses these two are respectively referred to as ‘bahusacca’ and ‘sippa’, the need of them for a good worldly living is accepted without any hesitation.
