The Artful Buddhist Teaching

Buddhist teaching is full of artistic expressions. It combined what was equivalent to today's museum and school system. Most students went to a Si to study because it usually had a complete collection of books, similar to today's library. The collections included not only sutras, but also almost every kind of publication. The monks were familiar with Buddhism, Confucianism, Taoism and ancient Chinese texts. They were capable of answering questions and were well versed on various subjects. Consequently, Buddhist institutions began to take over the educational mission for China.
