Example text

Education was viewed as the primary means to success. 5. The Doctrine of the Mean stresses that human nature should be in harmony with the larger universe. It states: What Heaven [the early Zhou dynasty name for the Supreme Being who watched over the conduct of humans and the laws of nature] imparts to man is called human nature. To follow our nature is called the Way. Cultivating the Way is called education. The emphasis on achieving harmony with Heaven’s will or mandate becomes the basis of political philosophy in the role of the Emperor and in the role of the Gentleman.

This was followed by the more speculative thinking in the book Zhuangzi (presumably by the author of the same name), which led to later expressions in literature, painting, and reclusive behavior. , came an increasing concern for the attainment of immortality by various practices, as well as the concoction and drinking of elixirs. The alchemical side of Daoism in attaining transcendence of the limitations of life through breath control, sexual hygiene, dietary regimens, and elixirs became common.

Classroom Concerns Because of the general ignorance about Buddhist teaching and practice in the United States, some students might view it as a cult. It is important to explain its key ideas and its moral code as worthy of careful study and discussion. It is also important to be aware that the different calendars employed by Buddhists of different traditions and nationalities—especially regarding the Buddha’s birthday and New Year’s celebrations—can be confusing. If you have Buddhist students in class, consult them or their parents about when they celebrate these events.
