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
Speech and bodily activities which accompany mental process must not be allowed to run on in an indiscreet, unbridled, random way. Just as a trainer disciplines and calms a wild and willful steed by subjecting it to skillful and prolonged training, so must the wild, wandering, random activities of body and speech be tamed to make them docile, righteous, and skillful. Therefore, the teachings of Lord Buddha comprise three graded categories for disciplining the mind: shila (training in higher conduct); samadhi (training in higher meditation); and prajna (training in higher wisdom).
~ The Path to Tranquility, November 14, 14th Dalai Lama ~
