Gangtok (PTI) -- The Tibetan Spiritual leader
Dalai Lama will inaugurate a four-day conference to be held here in December.

The four-day conference "Brain and mind, our
potential for change: Modern cognitive sciences
and eastern contemplative traditions" is being
organised by the Namgyal Institute of Tibetology(NIT).

Sikkim chief minister Pawan Chamling in a letter
to the Tibetan spiritual leader thanking him for
accepting the invitation to attend the conference
conveyed to him that the Sikkim government
intends to follow up the conference proceedings
by introducing moral ethics in Sikkim's schools and colleges, NIT sources said.

The conference is expected to lay the foundations
for Sikkim’s efforts to formally introduce
concepts of morals and ethics to its school curriculum, they said.

The proposed conference will be attended by
leading academics, scientists, thinkers and religious leaders.
