Why Buddhist Education is Important

by Venerable Wei Wu

Many years ago, when I was in Hong Kong, I was introduced to a very generous supporter of a temple who agreed to HK$4 million to the International Buddhist College (IBC). She told me that she had sent her daughter to one of the best schools in Hong Kong which was run by Christians. Most of the good schools in Hong Kong are run by Christians, especially Catholics who started schools a long time ago. After her daughter attended the Christian school for some time, she decided not to follow her mother to the temple anymore.
