"My wish is that one day formal education will pay attention to the education of the heart,teaching love,compassion,justice ,forgiveness,mind-fulness, tolerance and peace. This education is necessary from kindergarten to secondary schools and Universities. I mean social,emotional and ethical learning. We need a world wide initiative for educating heart and mind in this modern age."
Words of the Dalai Lama on May 2006 were printed in the LA Times.
