Value Inculcation through Self-Observation
“All who have meditated on the art of governing mankind have been convinced that the fate of the empires depends on the education of the youth.”- Aristotle
Given the vital role education plays in shaping the society, it is important to have a holistic education system which caters to all aspects of human life: physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. While the current education system emphasizes on physical and intellectual education, emotional and spiritual education is largely neglected. Vipassana meditation can bridge the crucial gap and help in the training of mind, leading to a balanced, harmonious and purposeful life.
This book contains a detailed analysis on how Vipassana can play a beneficial role in the betterment of the current education system. It addresses all aspects of holistic education in detail and points out how education in human values can be given rationally by training the students to analyze themselves in a scientific manner, just as they are trained to analyze the world outside.
This book is ideal for Vipassana meditators as well as non-meditators and is recommended reading for parents.
