In the following discourse, "Inspire your Child," Sadhguru answers probing questions, discussing the state of modern education and the need to inspire a child to reach his or her true potential. Sadhguru probes into the current situations involving the education system and the challenges faced by the children and their parents. He offers indispensable guidance, showing the way towards true transformation. The key he says lies in restoring the child's inner spark to learn, and giving the child a nurturing space to pursue their interests. “If the thirst for knowledge is kindled in the child, you cannot stop him from learning; he is going to learn anyway.” Additionally, he points out the misled motives that are prevalent in the system today, reminding us of what the primary function of education should be.
