Abstract

Preaching was an ancient method of teaching within Buddhism. The Buddha himself used and displayed abundant skill in preaching his message effectively. Yet, after two and a half millennia, preaching remains vital in Buddhism, making Buddhism one of the most significant Asian contributions to human civilization, holding the attention of large gatherings, influencing their thought and practice, and taking a prominent place in ritual and festivals.
