  4. Beloved Gurudev, can you speak on the future of education? It seems our curriculum is old fashioned, not useful for work and not supporting peace in the world. Will this change and how?

    Yes, you are absolutely right! It has to change, and you and me should change it. We should put all our efforts to change it. In India, The Art of Living has developed new educational methods for our schools. We have about 70-80 paid schools and over 4 ...
  5. If children are busy attending six hours of school, and then four more hours of tuition classes, how and when can they get the time to enhance their talents? How can the education system be reformed?

  8. Gurudev, what should be my role to curb terrorism?

    Our role to curb terrorism should be through education. We need to interact with people. There is no other way, because terrorists don’t come and fight with you face to face. If they face you and fight with you, then you can do something. They hide like co ...
  9. Gurudev, with the growing pressure on children, so many schools are aware that their students abuse substances. Yet, they prevent the learning of yoga and meditation.

    That is foolish. They should stop the children from drugs, alcohol and other abuse. I was so shocked to read that one school became free from this. We have 14 schools, I am sure none of our schools are anywhere close to alcohol or drugs. Today, it has ...
  10. Gurudev, I find that in spite of producing educated graduates, we still need to train them again before they can be used in our industry. How can we partner with your University, and introduce some education that is relevant for our industry?
