Mens et Manus MIT Seal

MIT's motto is "Mens et Manus," which translates from the Latin to "Mind and Hand." This motto reflects the educational ideals of MIT's founders who were promoting, above all, education for practical application.

"Mens et Manus" appears on the Institute's official seal, along with a scholar and a laborer who signify a union of knowledge and the mechanical arts, as do the volumes "Science and Arts" that rest on the pedestal in the center of the seal.

Quote of the moment
I am sometimes asked whether this vow of celibacy is really desirable and indeed whether it is really possible. Suffice to say that its practice is not simply a matter of suppressing sexual desires.

On the contrary, it is necessary to fully accept the existence of these desires and to transcend them by the power of reasoning. When successful, the result on the mind can be very beneficial. The trouble with sexual desire is that it is a blind desire and can only give temporary satisfaction.

Thus, as Nagarjuna said: "When you have an itch, you scratch. But not to itch at all is better than any amount of scratching."

~ The Path to Tranquility, May 29, 14th Dalai Lama ~
