Buddhist Education: Continuity and Progress

Edited by Prof. Le Manh That and Ven. Thich Nhat Tu

The Buddha’s teaching states the perfection of Buddhist education. Indeed the Buddha realized that birth and death do not exist in the triple world (the world of sense-desires, the world of form and the world of formlessness), but it is due to ignorance (avijja), false views (di hi) and desires (lobha) that living beings do evils to destroy one another, causing suffering to one another and then transmigrating through the round of births and deaths.
