Imagine an education system that only teaches love. There is a world leader that wants to create just that! He clearly sees life in an angelic manner.

Jigme Y. Thinley is Bhutan’s Prime Minister and he wants to create that.

“Ten years from now, five years from now, 20 years from now, what I would like to see happening in Bhutan is firstly, an education system that is quite different from the conventional factory where certain knowledge and capabilities are imparted, where children are just turned out to become economic animals, thinking only for themselves and working and earning for themselves.

“I would like to be able to see an education system that is truly educational, that will be able to produce graduates that are more human beings, with human values; that place and give importance to relationships; to students that are eco-literate, that are contemplative, that are analytical in terms of how they approach issues, challenges, even new knowledge; and basically people who will know and understand [and] appreciate that their needs as individuals are not really excessive.

“That success in life does not mean acquisition of wealth. That success in life is a state of being when one can come home at the end of the day satisfied with what one has done, being able to put your head on your pillow and have a sound sleep and … wake up the next day realizing that you are a happy individual, not only because you have found happiness for yourself, but in the process of one day’s work, you have given happiness to your spouse, to your children, to your family, to your neighbors and to the world at large.”

Imagine a world where all world leaders felt the same way…. what a world that would be.
