The interaction follows suit after His Holiness’, not so long ago, visit to San Diego. During his visit, His Holiness addressed a gathering of about 25,000 people at the RIMAC field of UC San Diego on 16 June, 2017.

In his public address, he spoke about diverse topics particularly dwelling on the importance of peace and compassion. He noted that modern education is falling short on its responsibility to teach compassion and urged educational institutions like UC San Diego to teach emotional intelligence as they would science or literature.

His Holiness also delivered the key-note address at the commencement ceremony of UC San Diego. The address was entitled, “The Value of Education, Ethics and Compassion for the Well-Being of Self and Others.”
