the reason kids in school meditate is not the same reason us buddhists meditate. buddhists meditate to reach the deathless and save all beings from infinite suffering. kids in school meditate because it calms the mind, makes them pay attention, it makes them kinder, improves body language, makes them happier, healthier, empathetic, and is a way of controlling temper tantrums. how do you not want to live in a world where every child has experience with metta or mindfulness, is that not THE most intelligent thing to do to develop world peace. what if sadaam hussein practiced metta as a child every day. we can try to disarm the nukes, or we can get rid of where nukes come from, delusional emotions.
nothing can destroy a man who has lived a pure life
