> Quotes > Education
Education is a process of stimulating and awakening people from the very core of their being, enabling them to unlock and develop the power within them to create happiness. For this, passion is key.
Knowledge alone does not produce wisdom. Transforming knowledge into wisdom requires input from the heart.
The heart of education exists in the process of teacher and pupil learning together, the teacher drawing forth the pupil’s potential and raising the pupil to eventually surpass the teacher.
Education must inspire the faith that each of us has both the power and the responsibility to effect positive change on a global scale.
Education makes us free. The world of knowledge and of the intellect is where all people can meet and converse. Education liberates people from prejudice. It frees the human heart from its violent passions
Education should not be based on or limited by a nationalist agenda. Education must cultivate the wisdom to reject and resist violence in all its forms. It must foster people who intuitively understand and know—in their mind, in their heart, with their entire being—the irreplaceable value of human beings and the natural world.
Nothing is more crucially important today than the kind of humanistic education that enables people to sense the reality of interconnectedness, to appreciate the infinite potential in each person’s life, and to cultivate that dormant human potential to the fullest.
