==Lack of Curiosity is Generally Due to Mental Inertia==
''Are mental indifference and lack of curiosity a sort of mental inertia?''
Usually they are due to mental inertia, unless one has obtained calm and indifference through a very intense sadhana resulting in a perfect equality for which the good and bad, the pleasant and unpleasant no longer exist. But in that case, mental activity is replaced by an intuitive activity of a much higher kind. <ref>http://incarnateword.in/cwm/12/answers-to-a-monitor#p111,p112</ref>

''What can we do to obtain calm and quietness in the class and get the children to do some work?''
