Audio and visual aids


In the teaching and preaching the Buddha used visual aids in order to make the teaching more clearer and understandable to the listeners.

Verse, similes, metaphors, Jatakas tales, parables and anecdotes can be counted as audio aids employed by the Buddha to make the teachings more closer to the listeners.

Use of piece of cloth in teaching to Cullapantaka, showing a dead she monkey to Nanda, showing a figure of an attractive woman to Khema and mastered seeds asked to bring for Kisagotami’s child can be counted as visual aids of the Buddha in teaching preaching to His disciples.

The on going observation clearly shows that the Buddha used every possible tool in transmitting the massage of the dhamma to His disciples when He was preaching.
