(TibetanReview.net, Jan12, 2018) – The Dalai Lama on Jan 10 addressed the inauguration of the 2nd National Teachers’ Congress in the Indian city of Pune. He emphasized the importance of training the mind, saying technological developments alone cannot solve our emotional problems. The venue was the MAEER MIT World Peace University.

“The existing system of modern education is largely oriented towards material growth, but we have to include inner values too. We should include in education both physical and inner wellbeing,” he was quoted as saying.

Those attending the congress included more than 5000 graduate and undergraduate college teachers as well as some 1000 teachers of Indian origin serving globally.

Harking to the knowledge contained in the ancient Indian psychology, the chief guest at the inaugural event said that in addition to physical hygiene we need to cultivate emotional hygiene, with a focus on achieving peace of mind.

The congress was stated to be the first confluence in India of the National Teachers’ Congress which connects more than 8000 eminent teachers from higher education institutions across India and teachers of Indian origin serving globally

Apart from Mayor Mukta Tilak of Pune, the other speakers were stated to include Mr  Rahul V Karad, Executive President of MIT World Peace University; Dr Anil Kakodkar, Eminent Scientist and Founding Patron of the National Teacher’s Congress; Dr Vishwanath D Karad; and Prof SC Sahasrabudhe.
