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.

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 🕯️🔥 pic.twitter.com/hvhFnsx6x1
 
In reply to @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.

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all. #ARISTOTLE

People motivate children to earn lot of money, whereas top priority should be human values.
 
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

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...

Holiness you are the hope for humanity, kindness and peace ☮️ thanks.... To you.
 
Educating a mind without educating a heart is like crafting a chandelier with no lights.
 
Seems like a canny bloke this Dalai lad, wouldn't mind a pint with him.
 
 
This tweet from His Holiness reminds me of @dsallentess’ “Education and Equality,” which I just read with a group of other education deans, and we had a robust discussion. Yes!
 
 
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 why I love the #Montessori method. Teaching kids to be kind, tolerant, understanding, respectful of other people and the environment...the list goes on.

This is why we are advocating for Global Peace Education! There really is no time to be wasteful about growing our collective consciousness. None!!! @swamiumeshyogi @FLOTUS @realDonaldTrump @SenSanders @CoryBooker #GPE
 
Right on, His Holiness.

Ms. Nikki, volunteers her time once a week to teach mindfulness practices to my class. It’s a start to nurturing soul and mind. We need to educate the whole child. #justbekind @MindfulNikki @MiamiSup @RKBBHK8 pic.twitter.com/9ue6QXuTUy
 
That’s the essential difference between an education geared towards knowledge or one geared towards wisdom.
 
In reply to @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.

This is exactly why I have your tweet notifications on. Wise words always come in for me at 3:30 am the time where I just wake up from sleep almost every night. Thank you for your consistent healthy energy @DalaiLama 🙏🏾
 
Kids DO NOT care how much YOU know until they know how much YOU care!
 
When educating our children’s brains, we must not neglect their hearts 🙌🏽🙌🏽

Nurturing the heart matters.

Couldn’t agree more, materialism is today more than ever a sickness of the soul that has to be eradicated through love, humility and compassion. A very though challenge in today’s society...
 
 
 
Love this. Materialistic values will not make you happy. Learn to feed the heart. Exactly our ethos. #wholechild #charactercurriculum Happy and successful children. #positivementalhealth

And their creativity because the great challenges of our time can only be solved by stepping beyond current thinking. Beyond current expectations. Creativity and compassion will set us free

Educating the whole child is the only way to educate.
 
In reply to @DalaiLama
Modern education is designed purely for making people fit for the work market rather than making them better people.
 
In reply to @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.
 
 
In reply to @DalaiLama
Emotional literacy should be priority one.
 
Minister Dan Tehan has denied that health and safety of children in childcare and schools are his responsibility, because he runs the Dept of Education. How does that pass any test of accountability?

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.
 
I know damn well he ain't tweet this
 
 
Timely info. “Educate their hearts.” We need to raise kind humans, above all. Everything else is window dressing. If only...
 
 
In reply to @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.
 
In reply to @DalaiLama
exactly, love opens the heart to compassion
 
 
 
Exactly what I have been talking about this week!!

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.
 
In reply to @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...
 
In reply to @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.

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.
 
In reply to @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 !
 
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 ...
 
This needs to be applied to all levels of teaching & learning inside and outside of schools.

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 !! 😔😔

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.
 
In reply to @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.
 
In reply to @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.
 
 
In reply to @DalaiLama
In addition the goal of education should not be to beat out your competition to get more resources for yourself. The goal of education should be to help children become lifelong learners and find the area they enjoy and WANT to form a career in... for the common good.

Is there a standardized test for that?
