“Modern education with its focus on material goals and a disregard for inner values is incomplete. There is a need to know about the workings of our minds and emotions. If we start today and make an effort to educate those who are young now in inner values, they will see a different, peaceful, more compassionate world in the future”
Irregardless if you are Buddhist, the current Dalai Lama is a truly remarkable person. I find his messages very intelligent, sensitive, and relevant to our times and the current problems in this world. I would highly recommend checking out his website for a wealth of interesting, mind-opening information.
If anyone has any book recommendations or other links about Buddhism, I would love to hear them in the comments. Thanks!
