Now we must pay attention to our schools: Instilling Goodness, Developing Virtue and Dharma Realm University. It is time to reform them and to improve the quality of our education so that students will learn what they should. The first thing we teach is to be filial and compliant to one's parents. Second, we teach students to respect their teachers and the elderly. We do not tolerate certain students in ordinary schools who go so far as to threaten to kill their parents. In the past we had some students with a similar tendency in our school, but after they had studied there for a while they didn't want to kill parents or teachers any longer. Because they changed, the parents and the elders in the family were all pleased.
In our high school, students must learn to be devoted to their country. They learn to protect the integrity of their own country and not to invade others' countries. Invasions and aggression take numerous lives and destroy an enormous amount of peoples' property. It is possible to make a successful invasion, yet what you gain does not match what you lose, especially in terms of the human lives that are injured or lost. Military aggression shouldn't be the policy of a wise leader.
In the university, we teach morality and humaness, how to be a good person, and how not to deceive people. We teach students they shouldn't be un-loyal, unfilial, untrustworthy, unbenevolent, or unrighteous to the people in the world. We should use humaness and righteousness as we deal with ourselves and with others. This is a general outline of our educational reform. I hope that all of you will treasure the time in your youth and will learn something true and worthwhile.
