Speaking at the John Oliver School, Vancouver, to an audience comprising of school's staffs, students and parents of the children at the school, he said: "Here in the 21st century, the problems and violence we see around us are not only man-made, but made by educated people. This shows that our existing education systems lack moral principles.
"We can't expect the government to do it, nor the UN. Religion may be of some help, but will not reach all 7 billion human beings alive today. The only way is through education. However, at present most education is focused on material things, not on the importance of inner values. This is what we need to change."
Later during the day he addressed a large audience at Vancouver Convention Centre on 'Science of Education of the Heart.'
"None of us wants trouble or problem and yet we are beset by problems largely of our own making. We use our intelligence and resources to create immensely destructive weapons, which only create suffering. The idea that we can resolve problems by force is out of date. All it means is that the innocent, women and children, suffer most," he said.
On the following day he visited the University of British Columbia and addressed the gathering on 'The Art and Science of Education of the Heart.'
Canadian government granted the resettlement of 1,000 Tibetan refugees from the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh and the process of resettlement in various parts of Canada was initiated earlier this year.
