H.H. gave speech on the values of the modern and traditional education, and at the same time sharing the idea of upgrading the skilful methods of teachings. In his speech H.H. also emphasised on saying that all things are impermanent and interdependent, and ultimately that is the truth of Dharma. We human beings have infinite power and potential to build the nation and world with the constructive mode or moral education. This world depends on us and our actions, if we mis-behave with the world with our selfish motive or egoestic motive, then sooner or later there will be no peace on earth and everywhere would be destruction. Therefore the Buddha said “He who sees me, cannot see Buddha. He who sees the depending arising, can see the Buddha”.36344896 204806740358842 4033963001005473792 n H.H. thanked the organising committee and the offered a khata and Buddha portrait to Prof. Atul Krishna the founder of the Subharti University, and also thank all the participants, teaching staffs and faculty members of the University. 36449911 204807237025459 6256862057065349120 nIn the end the wonderful classical Kathak dance was performed by the students of the University which was enjoyed by all
