Teacher“There are three ways to learn,” according an article in the latest issue of Buddhism Today (article not available online). “Learning by experience: This is the hardest. Learning by reflection: This is the noblest. Learning by imitation: This is the fastest.” People can’t achieve enlightenment by learning in just one way. Different kinds of education are required for different kinds of knowledge.
