Abstract

 

    The development of service mind of teachers based on Buddhadhamma leads to mental prosperity of teachers who are the great masters in teaching their students virtues and application of learnt knowledge in daily life. In their mind, good teachers must have kindness (Pāli: mettā), compassion (Pāli: karuṇā), sympathetic joy (Pāli: muditā) and equanimity (Pāli: upekkhā) towards their students. They must wish their students to have happiness and be optimistic in understanding differences of their students in terms of physical, mental and emotional,. The good teachers must develop themselves to have four virtues as follows: 1) kindness by training themselves to control their anger forgiveness; 2) compassion by training themselves to have pity towards their students, teaching with compassion3) sympathetic joy by training themselves success; and 4) equanimity by training themselves to be neutral and to have constant actions with the application of doctrine called  

    Another virtue the teachers should develop in their mind is ‘the bases of social solidarity (Pāli: sagahavatthu)’, the virtue that holds the students’ minds. The teachers are responsible for knowledge sharing, being generous, having good and cheerful speech, useful suggestions, giving encouragement, creating harmony, providing assistance in physical, financial and mental aspects, providing public help, When the teachers have their minds as same as that of the Brahma and continuously practice the dhamma of the bases of social solidarity, they will have service mind as the power for positively creating the society and nations.
