Thought of the Moment

”Parents need to nourish spiritual values in their children from a very young age.”
”Education for livelihood alone will never make our life full and complete.”
”Children, each and every object in life around us teaches us sacrifice.”
”Love and spiritual values received from parents are the strongest assets for a child to face the various trials of adulthood.”
”Parents should be loving towards their children when they are very young, just like watering a tender, young plant.”
”Look carefully at what is of value in others and respect that.”
”Through the Guru the mind becomes purified, thus paving the way towards becoming one with God.”
”We should fill the syllabuses of schools with lessons about love and compassion.”
”Our educational system needs to give equal importance to the intellect and the heart.”
”Children should observe a regular schedule for sleeping and waking up.”

Amma’s Message

We all know that the real goal of education is not to create people who understand only the language of technology; it should be to also impart a culture of the heart based on spiritual values. Tomorrow’s world will be shaped by today’s children. In their tender minds it is easy to cultivate universal human values. The teaching of universal spiritual principles and human values should be a standard part of general education.
