be made dependent on myth,
or authority
 Modern age – the age of science.

bring in conflict with secularism.

– cheat , steal, abuse, beat me
• What kind of friend, employer, customer,
servant, spouse, child......would I like?
• Is it true of all ?
Do unto others
as you wish
others to do unto you
Analyzing Life’s experiences …II
• What makes us really happy ?
Greediness or generosity ?
Cheating or honesty ?
Cruelty or compassion
Anger or forgiveness ?
Falsehood or truthfulness ?
Is this universally true ?
Thus we can discover the requirements for happy living
Analyzing Life’s Experiences ..III
• There are certain universal Human Values
[UHV] … Honesty, Loving Kindness,
Compassion, Generosity, Forgiveness….
• Imbibing UHV essential for happy living
• Intentions are more important than actions
• Differences between people are trivial as
compared to what they have in common
3. Value Dimension
should permeate all
Discuss in all subjects their value
implications: physics, chemistry,
mathematics, biology, social
Ensure that different subject Teachers
do not convey conflicting views on
