H.H the Dalai Lama identified, through years of research and dialogue with all faiths and non-believers, that ethics are fundamentally important to all. He has a vision is to create a harmonious, peaceful and joyful global society.
This is possible through Secular Ethics in Education.

“More important than religion is our elemental human spirituality. It is the predisposition to love, kindness, and affection that we all possess, regardless of the religion we profess. In my point of view, people can live without religion, but they can not live without values, without ethics.”
