18:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - THE VALUE OF EDUCATION - Part 1 : is to build and strengthen one’s inner personality Website | More Information
The word educate is derived from educare (Latin), meaning to draw out, to bring out potential. Educational systems, the world over, are based on thrusting knowledge onto students, instead of drawing it out of them. As a result, students become well informed on one or more subjects. Such education renders a student intelligent, but when it comes to handling life’s challenges and making the right choices, mere intelligence will not guarantee the best result. This fact is exemplified by the problems of obesity, addictions, stress and depression among highly intelligent people. These talks, held over two nights, will investigate how we can solve many of life’s problems by simply understanding and implementing the value of education, which is to build and strengthen one’s inner personality. When an individual’s character is developed, he or she becomes well equipped to make responsible choices and face life’s challenges with ease.

18:00 - VISITING SPEAKER - THE VALUE OF EDUCATION - Part 2 : This is the second seminar in a two-part seminar series Website | More Information
Intelligence is acquired knowledge of a particular subject or subjects. But being knowledgeable in no way renders your intellect clear to think, reason and decide on matters pertaining to life. A person could be highly intelligent, yet impractical in day to day living. For example, a scientist may be brilliant with respect to science, but could possess a weak intellect, incapable of controlling his own mind. This weakness could result in him being short-tempered, stressed, an alcoholic, depressed, etcetera. Therefore, the value of education lies in developing and strengthening one's inner personality to be able to handle life's challenges with ease.
