 The Dalai Lama Says Holistic Education Is the Need of the Hour

The Dalai Lama stressed on the importance of holistic education to ease stress and frustration of modern life. The Dalai Lama is the Tibetan spiritual leader.

Addressing a gathering in New Delhi as part of the 150th birth anniversary celebrations of Swami Vivekananda, the Dalai Lama said that countries and communities with the highest standards of education still reported high levels of stress.

"The modern existing education only teaches about material value. Those nations or communities where education is highly developed, with material facilities also highly developed, but there is a lot of mental stress, a lot of depression, as well as suicide," he said.

The Tibetan spiritual leader added that India stood as an example to the world as a place where many religions coexisted in harmony.

"India is a living example, that religious harmony is not only possible, not only an idea, but actually exists in this country," the Dalai Lama said.
