This activity will teach them in what way another person can be touched respectfully. On the drawing you can see a kind of massage that is special, using soft balls and circle with them on eachother's back, belly, head, or legs. Mathematics and movement make a nice couple together!.

The emissary had learned a sacred mantra that all young children in the British Empire were required to chant from the moment they learned to speak. He told the Dalai Lama that in just a few short lines this mantra offered advice for living a good life.
It also clearly revealed existence as merely an illusion that should not be taken too seriously. Naturally, the Dalai Lama was very excited. He eagerly asked to hear the sacred mantra.
