One of the basic aims of education is to bring Harmony. The International Conference on Harmony through Education aims to focus on the important role of education to bring about
Harmony in society through education. Education enables us to develop our capacities so that we can lead fulfilling and dignified lives. We, in Bharat, have been nurtured with such a cultural environment where happiness is wished for all and not only for individuals. We have been chanting सवभवुसुखन:
May all be happy! Yet we are facing terrible threats to harmonious living in our country. Besides, we are living in an era of the explosion of information and knowledge. Education
is no more the monopoly of certain class or creed. Insight for harmony is something that is installed right from the beginning of social life and hence, schools can help foster a sense of community and harmony.
