Tibetan spiritual leader Dalai Lama on Monday said brilliant human brain should not be used to make weapons to kill others, but it should be utilised to create peaceful and happy world.

He was interacting with the delegates of 10 countries during Round Table Conference on ‘Human Education in the Third Millennium’ at his residence in Dharamshala.

“These people from different countries now really showing genuine interest which is interest for humanity, how to build a better world happier world peaceful world,” he said.

Dalai Lama said 7 billion human beings including those troublemakers come from their mother. Every individual in his prime receives maximum love and affection from his or her mother. ‘My first teacher of compassion is my mother.’ He further spoke about motherly love and its impact on their child.

“Given that education is supposed to bring a happy life, a happy community and a happy world and as basic human nature is said to be more compassionate, then why are there more problems created by humans?

“Young children before joining the education institutes carry the basic compassionate nature of human being which is very fresh yet after joining the schools, the basic values are not taught or strengthened. There’s no emphasis on how to keep inner peace and when somebody experiences anger, jealousy and fear they do not know how to tackle it,” he said.

He expressed the need for the hygiene of emotion from the kindergarten level just like the hygiene of physical body. “So that is today’s world. Because of the materialistic education, the whole generation creates materialistic life, materialistic culture and there is no room for compassion and inner values,” he added. Tibetan spiritual leader praised the Non-violence concept of Mahatma Gandhi and spoke about his latest commitment on the revival of Ancient Indian tradition to tackle mind.

“India should show the world the concepts of Ahimsa, Karuna to Karuna, how to tackle when anger comes and combine the Ancient Indian Knowledge with modern knowledge. We already have some programmes of teachers training about the mind scheduled in 2019.

“Education mainly deals with the brain whether that education is utilised for construction or destruction is related to motivation. The wonderful brain must combine with warm-heartedness and a sense of responsibility.” “Existing education is not adequate. I think most of the trouble maker on this planet as far the modern education is concerned they all have very good modern education but that education becomes disposal of fear, jealousy, attachment and anger,” he added.
