East or West, the Goal Is the Same: Buddhist Psychology and Its Potential Contributions to Invitational Education
Riner, Phillip S.
Journal of Invitational Theory and Practice, v16 p89-105 2010
After describing the basic tenets of Invitational Education and Buddhist psychology, this article explores four commonalities and their implications: The individual is in control; knowing is not doing; others can help; and we can facilitate others' efforts to use effective strategies to reach happiness. The paper concludes by contrasting Invitational Education and Buddhist views on self, perception, and appropriate action. Invitational appropriate wisdom (pradjna paramita) is totally under the control of the individual. (Contains 2 figures.)
