Buddhism possesses the most effective practices through which to instruct all human beings how to live in society peacefully, happily and harmoniously. The best guidance comes from the teachings of the Buddha, the founder of Buddhism. A useful source to guide such practices are the jātakas. As one part of his teachings, these are presented as reproaches on his disciples’ wrongdoings. In this paper, I will propose the use of jātakas as bedtime stories through which to build a firm Buddhist foundation in the minds of children.
