International educational conference at Tallinn University

Part -1

Light and Love

The motto:

From "Homo Sapiens" to "Homo Spirits".

The international conference 'Integration Human Values into Education' organized in Estonia by Tallinn University, Faculty of Educational Sciences, Department of Educational Sciences, Chair of Educational Science on 18 - 20 August 2006. With different groups of teachers and specialists the spiritual trips to different countries of Estonia was carried out (and will carry out) 21 - 29 August 2006. These trips were as study days with opportunity to discuss the topics of conference in the condition of wild nature.

The conference was seva for Organization Committee and also for lecturers. Members of Organization Committee were also the tiny sponsors of the event. The participation of conference and theses were free.

In conference has taken part about 200 or little more teachers of kindergartens, schools and universities. It was not public conference, but for teachers and specialists.

In this conference Swami was on the role of the World Teacher, as the scientist of Vedas and scientist of human's consciousness. His Works have inspired this conference and have been used as references.

May be, it is Swami's Cosmic Form's Will that in tiny Nordic country (whole population is little more than one million; great contrast between rich and poor) His Teaching is spreading among teachers with aim to put it at first into hearts themselves, then into hearts of students and children. This activity has begun several years ago from the grass root level. Now it seems, that it will spread into the area of interest to more higher level.
