Integrating Buddhist doctrine into arts education
Abstract:It is vitally important in Taiwan to honour cultural subjectivity and infuse local perspectives into arts education ideology so as to nourish the human spirit in this age of globalization and social change. Cultivation of human kind, a necessary ingredient of healthy spirituality, can be achieved through an interdisciplinary curriculum focusing on core culture interwoven with artistic and humanistic pedagogy. This approach is analogous to the arts activities undertaken by Yuenchao Temple, which are grounded in Buddhist philosophy. This paper explores the Yuenchao Temple model of educating spirituality.
