Creating a world where compassion and kindness are the basis of our thoughts and practice
Compassion Matters, a project from The Dalai Lama Centre for Compassion, aims to create a kinder and happier society by inspiring them to lead compassionate lives.
We achieve this by sharing our compassion and ethics curriculum with schools and education charities. Our learning resources equip children to gain a foundational understanding and to think critically about ethical issues. We also support children to practice compassion, reflection and self compassion. Through deepening their knowledge of what it means to be human, the skills to navigate the challenges of life, children can support their resilience and long term wellbeing.
We help children to understand that compassion and related concepts, such as courage, justice and happiness, are the key not only to a happier, more harmonious society but also to individual well-being.
