First of all, this article straight forwardly explains the direction of the topic to be explored and the key concepts involved. In accordance with the supermundane Buddhist texts and worldly academic studies and according to their different ways of thinking, I did explore and examination and reflecting on a series of interrelationships between them. The Dharma taught by the Buddha 2500 years ago. It still has high value of practice in our life. And in our Modern society, we are also inspired by the guidance of life written in the Buddhist sutra and I am thinking of how to make the suitable for practice. The life education should not be limitedto physical and psychological education. It should also possess the inspiration for research of life issues in our future. It could guide us to think about life in a proper way, it would pursue meaningful and valuable life. It could be helping modern people who can easily grab any information without the skillful expedient teaching. Further, it would be the best of the life education’s text as a key to the exploration of the spiritual code and the enlightenment of life awareness. In this thesis, the scope of discussion and exploration focus on Sudhana’s journey where Sudhana had visited and learned from fifty three great enlightened masters. According to this pilgrimage, I took the most powerful core of Buddha’s teaching which are Six paramitas (1.almsgiving: dāna; 2.keeping the precepts: sīla; 3. forbearance: kshānti; 4.assiduousness: vīrya; 5.meditation: dhyāna ; 6. the obtaining of wisdom: prajnā) and the methods of winning people (1. expounding the Buddha’s teachings and/or giving material things; 2. speaking in a kindly manner; 3. acting to benefit others; 4. sharing others’ hardships and cooperating with them) to implement in our life. A set of six perfections and the methods of winning people are important concepts among Mahayana Buddhism and being introduced in Bodhisattva’s path. I am not just taking a theoretical perspective,as a way to practice for oneself or for the benefit of others in daily life, but also as a method of empathizing all sentient being who are dealing with suffering. As a part of practice for oneself, it needs to use the skillful expedient teaching of Buddha, according to the capabilities of sentient beings in order to make people feel delighted and sincerely willing. It will naturally give all sentient beings the light of hope by using the methods of winning people skillfully, leading all living beings from the world of delusion. Again, the Buddha dharma will be popularized to purify the spirit of people and purify the social trends and customs. It is a set of tool that let the public accept the Buddha dharma. It could lead people to practice Six paramitas and the methods of winning people. In order to transform people's hearts and society from a self-ego’s life to a compassionatelife, the concept of Buddha dharma should be integrated with people in future. This research also provides people to explore the meaning of life and enhancing the value of life. It looks forward to the connection between the beginningless life and Buddhist studies. It makes our life return to a state with satisfaction of essential mind. Taking the journey of research penetrates the process of life as the main axis, it will help us to deepen our outlook on life through internal reflection and practical experience in the flow of life, in order to internalize value and pursue physical and mental improvement.
