Mahatma Gandhi – Peace and Truth at the Heart of Freedom

The system of education we have today is filled with flaws, and it’s about time we did something to create a positive change, no matter how small or large. We need to do everything we can to create a better system for our children and all the youth of the world of tomorrow.

The world we live in is a world filled with problems that need fixing. There’s a lot of inequality, violence, and unhappiness. However, we should add that there is still a lot of happiness in it as well as prosperity.

His Isha Foundation was created to provide that heightened self-awareness that we all need to make a difference in the world.
