Abstract


the Lord Buddha. The objective of this research is Bothiñaṇa (Enlightenment) by
setting up three hypotheses namely: hypothesis 1. “I am the excellent one in the
world, I am the big and the precious one in the world, my birth is the final birth,
in the next future my birth is not started again.” This hypothesis is set up by the Lord
Buddha when he was born from princess Sirimahāmāyā at Lumpinīvana. Hypothesis
2. “To renounce the world as the monk will make him getting peacefulness.”
This hypothesis is set up by the Lord Buddha when he saw an old person, a sick
person, a dead person and a monk. Hypothesis 3. “Spiritual diligence with practice
according to the Middle Way is the way leading to overcome suffering.” This
hypothesis is set up after performing Dukkarakiriyā (self-modification). He realized
that Dukkarakiriyā is not the way of Bothiñaṇa, is not the way leading to overcome
suffering. Research methodology of the Lord Buddha is an experimental research
with observational instrument and measurement after experiment by himself.
The results of research were as follows:
1. All animals are difference in capacities which depend on Kamma (volitional
action) and these capacities are the beginning point of Buddhist education. All animals
can start to develop themselves until Bothiñaṇa.
2. All animals can start to develop the capacities with three wholistic
developments namely : relations with environment, spirit and true knowledge.
3. All animals can start to develop the capacities with three Buddhist educations
namely: Sila (Adhisīlasikkhā)Training in higher morality, Smathi (Adhicitta-Sikkhā):
Training in higher mentality and Pañña(Adhipañña-Sikkhā):Training in higher wisdom. 

4. All animals can start to develop the capacities to occupy Bothiñaṇa with
integration between Sīla and relations with environment, Samādhi and spirit and
Pañña and true knowledge.
