@DalaiLama Respectfully disagree. I’m a youth football legend, Dali Lama, and I can tell you compassion won’t win you many games. We need soulless machines of destruction on the field.

@DalaiLama At times, even after abundance of materialistic things, we bring misery in our lives.

While the supreme truth is quite different.

A blissful life happens only by richness of inner being, by a strong compassionate attitude.

This should be the basic ground of education 🕯️🔥

@DalaiLama The right kind of education will teach everyone to live here now, to create a paradise out of this earth. It will teach the blissfullness.

It will not teach to go on possessing things & become miserable till death stops your misery.

Let death find you dancing & joyous & loving.

Humans over other mammals have the ability to assist and give. Nurturing the heart and soul through giving, assisting, praying and meditating are the cornerstones of a happy life, lessons we need to pass on generation to generation.

All of modern education, including medical and nursing schools, needs to move beyond the disproven materialism to access far greater potential for human free will, allowing a far better world for all. #LivingInAMindfulUniverse

@DalaiLama And I found sending my children to @WaldorfTucson did this. My wife and I recognized that the philosophy of head, heart, hands is more important than test, grade and reward...

Educating a mind without educating a heart is like crafting a chandelier with no lights.

@DalaiLama It must begin in the home. If not it will be too late for the school to do anything about it.

Modern education has been a miserable failure to produce leaders, management professionals ,scientists and engineers who carry values of compassion,empathy and reflection. Future of this planet will be safe in hands of leaders who are compassionate.

That’s the essential difference between an education geared towards knowledge or one geared towards wisdom.

@DalaiLama I’m a teacher in NY and I teach my students the opposite of materialistic values. We value experiences and “moments” over things. Weekly lessons on intrinsic values.

One of the many things I love about my job is the high priority we put on teaching our students to serve and show kindness to others. We try to expand their compassionate hearts as much as we do their academic minds.

@DalaiLama Modern education is designed purely for making people fit for the work market rather than making them better people.

@DalaiLama I have seen over and over again that children are born with loving compassionate hearts. It’s the people that surround them educate that out of them by being so materialistic & program them that money is the most important thing.

@DalaiLama Ethics should be a part of every system of education of the world.Mere building of intelligent minds can't help humanity. Intelligence is a nuisance without morality.

@DalaiLama So true. If we educated their hearts first, fewer children would be left behind. Fewer would quit school. Fewer would turn to drugs. Fewer would commit suicide. They would know their truth and purpose. 🙏

@DalaiLama Compassion is something that is learned from a small baby till you're an adult. That's why there's so many people without it, their parents never taught them compassion because they have no compassion and children always mimic what they see their parents do.

The message below is also true for Autistic children. If we prioritize creating a relationship with them, nurturing a friendship and accepting them for who they are right now, in this moment, we will be more powerful as mentors. Let everything we do flow from love!❤️

@DalaiLama I agree with this because my both sons are students and I see in practice that they have the same interest and want sometimes a lot of nonsense stuff and I teach them that stuff is not Love.

@DalaiLama When it’s systemized to evaluate the brain side only, how can we promote students to nurture their heart? I teach 11th grade. It’s so sad when students says they only want something necessarily for exams. I feel they are in fear and are under high pressure for entrance exam...

@DalaiLama We as humans must recognize we have failed to discern the spiritual purpose of creation, human life and our complete UNIVERSAL biological form. Generations we fail to education as children results in a greater distortion of this TRUTH.

@DalaiLama Hopefully someone will take note. The most recent street fight that had had teenagers egging me in to finish a man who had clearly capitulated and was walking away. Their cries of “Uncle! Uncle! FINISH HIM!” Were quite disconcerting. 5-0 soon caused a rapid scattering of us all.

@DalaiLama Correct! If all we do is train and educate our children to go and make money in the market place, they might miss much of what life is all about !

@DalaiLama Nowadays education become a #business in our world mainly they were focusing on what comes into there account and they were making children as a dump rather than making as future of nation !! 😔😔

@DalaiLama I don't teach music. I teach children. We make music together, but the topic is really mutual respect, compassion, inner peace, choosing joy, and accepting ourselves even as we experience pain. Teaching is an honor; many of us know this and trapped within an unsympathetic system.

@DalaiLama In modern education materialistic values are disguised as positive.
So confusion is imprimted about what is positive and what is negative.
Shouldn't we teach how to differentiate positive and negative first? So tell me, what is positive and what is negative.

As a result, instead of training our children to be caring and compassionate and do problem solving, , we train them just to compete .
Then we end up in a more competitive world rather than a caring environment, where they will suffer more than we did ...

@DalaiLama Nurturing in health & adequate sleep also. #UnitedStates subjects kids to crazyhours in the pursuit of a least common denominator education. Stifles creativity & undermines full genetic potential.

@DalaiLama So true. Everything seems reducible to monetary value. Even a phrase as innocuous as “know your worth” implies placing economic value on one’s self. We need to see a person’s humanity as their defining trait.
