Note Chapter 1. Introduction - Gautama Buddha in Historical Context -- Chapter 2. Emergence of Buddha's 45-year Educational Legacy -- Chapter 3. The Buddha's Education Philosophy: From the Heartland -- Chapter 4. Buddha's Pavinaupaya 'by skilful means' Pedagogy -- Chapter 5. The Gradual Path for the Development of Wisdom
This book examines some of the key elements of Buddhist education theory, in particular about educating for wisdom, the ultimate goal of Buddhist education. The teachings of Gautama Buddha have endured for thousands of years carried into the present era in schools, universities, temples, personal development courses, martial arts academies and an array of Buddhist philosophical societies across the globe. Philosophically, the ideas of the Buddha have held appeal across many cultures, but less is known about the underlying educational theories and practices that shape teaching and learning within Buddhist-inspired educational contexts. The chapters outline the development of the Buddha's teachings, his broad approach to education and their relevance in the 21st century. Subsequently, the book reviews the history of the evolution of the various schools of Buddhist thought, their teaching and learning styles and the dissemination among Asia and later also the Western countries. The book discusses education theories and devices embedded within the Buddhist teachings, examining the works found in the Tipitaka, the Buddhist canon
