About the Curriculum
Under the direction of His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin, the Children’s Dharma Education Curriculum has been developed with the vision of a world where all children have the tools to live a happy and purposeful life, as compassionate and responsible citizens in this evolving and interconnected world.
The purpose of this Early Elementary Dharma Program is to provide kindergarten through elementary-aged students age-appropriate content focusing on Buddhist values, which will contribute to the child’s growth as both a healthy individual and community member. While much of the lesson content explores themes in everyday life, the inclusion of prayers and meditation practice in each lesson’s framework gives students a beginning understanding of mindfulness and Buddhist practice.
Dharma Education Curriculum programs are intended as a supplemental resource for Dharma centers, educational organizations, or any members of the public interested in providing a Dharma Education to children. Guided by the belief that every human being has unlimited potential, Dharma Education teaches the skills and mindsets rooted in Buddha’s teaching, “Perform every possible virtuous deed, refrain from non-virtuous deeds, and tame one’s mind.”
