“Intentional Development of Emotional Intelligence” – Lama Surya Das

These Weekly Words of Wisdom from Lama Surya Das are his own words.

“What we need is not only better gun control but self-control, including the intentional development of emotional intelligence, mindful anger management, attention training and reactivity reconditioning. These virtues and character traits are eminently trainable and learnable, and the tools and techniques enabling us to do so are at hand. I believe this could easily be part of modern education, and the hallmark of a more peaceful and compassionate era in our violence-prone country.”
