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 400 free schools in India. (With the Euro-a-Day and Dollar-a-Day donation schemes, today we have expanded to 404 free schools with about 40,000 children studying in them.) It is such a joy to see the transformation in the children.
We have adopted a new way of teaching. They do not carry a big load of books in their bags. We teach them to be creative, and to understand the topic and the subject well.
Yes, we should do something along those lines in Europe as well. We will see.
