Education is more than the gathering of information and making a living. True education is a lifelong process beginning even before birth. It includes understanding and living the right values in our day-to-day life, whether we are teachers, parents, or students. A truly educated person is one who leads a life full of dynamism, peace, and joy. Such a person is able to contribute to society in a most meaningful way by bringing harmony and peace wherever he or she goes. This is the vision of true education as presented by the authors in this book.
