Things to know about Buddhist social service

Man lives in society from birth to death, he enjoys social association, therefore, a person should be a social person. Buddhism has presented the necessary instructions and measures to establish the relationship between the individual and the society. Buddhist ethics are put into practice.In order to understand the reality of the society, he must first think that he belongs to it, then he starts to understand that all his problems are common problems of the society.

Society is very complex due to individual and environmental disparity, social disparity exists a lot and there are few obstacles for the individual to live there as a member with full rights. There is no end to the suffering. Because of this situation, Buddhists have a desire to reduce the common sufferings of the society. One is social service.

The social service of the Buddhist social worker is called altruistic behaviour. Its meaning is to act for the good of others. The embodiment of the example of the Buddhist social worker. The Buddha, the monk, preached to his disciples to act for altruism. Buddhism also presents a formal plan for altruistic service. That plan is called Buddhist Attha Charya.

An honest Buddhist social worker rejects narrow selfishness, always thinks about the development of himself and his blood relatives, strives to lead his parents, brothers and sisters to a higher status in society, and also extends the concept of kinship to other relatives and the village people.

Buddhist social work is divided into social preservation, social development, and Buddhist social workers make social development messages. In this way, the ultimate goal of all these programs is personal development, that is, personal development and social development.

Buddhist social services are started by setting up a Dharamshala in the village temple. Uniting the village children, youth and adults. Its origin is the Buddhist children's clubs in the Dharamshala. Young Buddhist societies. Elderly clubs, etc. Creation of Sadhu clubs. Social service is another step. By establishing these clubs, they can understand the importance of personal development, social development, and social service. This mental motivation is a high social service.

Social preservation as well as social development is the foundation of social development that belongs to Buddhist service. Education is a very useful service to start schools and Dhamma schools with the aim of providing formal education.The Buddhist social worker is for education. Here, schools work hard for the education of the youth. Normal schools work hard for the education of adults. Technical training, scientific knowledge, and moral training are given to everyone in general. It's important feature is that it is expected to make the ignorant educated and enlightened. This is superior to all other Buddhist services. Considered.

Another aspect of health service is that taking care of women is a high social service. Buddhist tradition also shows that there must be healthy people for social development. Establishing free hospitals for the health of the people. Starting tourist medical services is a Buddhist social service. Likewise, donating medical equipment needed for hospitals, etc. is a Buddhist service.

They ask others to donate food, clothing, books, etc., to prepare a program to support poor students who have interrupted their education due to the lack of food, clothing, books, and to create small industries and provide livelihoods to unemployed people. Another aspect of social development is that all these activities are Buddhist services because some people who are antisocial become productive citizens.

Running a newspaper and a magazine to train Buddhist ethical habits, organising well-known sermons under various topics and showing drama films reflecting the vices of immorality and the virtues of morality are the possible help for Buddhist social service through mass communication media.

No medium of communication that does not develop the intellect and Buddhist morality belongs to the Buddhist social service sector - but in setting up said cultural centres the Buddhist social worker is concerned with the moral sector.

According to this, it can be explained that Buddhist social services are formal actions that direct the common society towards one goal. The more self-interest is excluded and altruism is developed, the more meaningful the Buddhist social service becomes. It becomes effective.
