About Education 有关教育组

社会教育是为了培养社会所需要的各种人才,以推动整个社会的政治,文化等等各方面的发展,因此社会教育在人类进化中是很重要的!

然而,佛教教育与社会教育略有不同;除了以认同社教的功能为基础外,另有特别的含义.佛教教育以”凈心第一,利他为上” 为宗旨,以有系统、有规范性的佛法教导众生,培养正知正见的佛教徒,然后修行弘法利生的事业.

“凈心第一”是自利的原则,这该先以佛法净化思想或心理,依此提升道德人格,修行解脱之道.”利他为上”是利生的愿行,这应以正知正见为基础,发扬”以出世之心,做入世之事”的菩萨精神,积极参与各种利生的工作.

本会教育助理委员会根据以上的目的而成立,它由一位管委和五位助理委员组成,属下分四大组,今简介如下:

 (一)教育设施组

(二)研究与发展组

(三)培训与督导组

(四)行政与资讯组

佛教教育对于发扬佛教精神, 振兴佛教十分重要, 所以希望更多佛教徒能发心参与本助理委员会的各项工作, 同心协力让佛教教育得以落实, 共同创造人间净土。

In a society, education serves to cultivate talents in order to improve the political, economical and other aspects of the society. Education is therefore very important to the progress of humanity.

Besides sharing the purpose and foundation of education in society, Buddhist education in itself carries a special meaning. Purifying oneself and benefiting others are the objectives of Buddhist education. A systematic Buddhist education aims to cultivate Buddhists of right faith and right understanding who will uphold the practice and propagation of the Dharma.

Purifying oneself pertains to self benefits as one purifies his mind and cultivates towards enlightenment. On the other hand, benefiting others is the aspiration to help others which is based on right faith and right understanding of the Dharma and the propagation of the Bodhisattva spirit through the participation of various activities.

With the above objectives in mind, our Society has established the Education Sub-Committee, which comprises a committee member and five sub-committee members. The four divisions of the Sub-committee are as follow : 

(1) Education Bodies Group
(2) Research and Development Group
(3) Education Matters & Guidance Group
(4) Administration and Information Group

Buddhist education plays a very important role in promoting Buddhism and propagating its spirit. We therefore hope that more Buddhists will join us in our efforts to realise the Buddhist education, hence creating a Pure Land in samsara.
