In the period of the Buddha, education was transmitted through religion, which was accorded great emphasis. Education was primarily used as a tool to obtain freedom or enlightenment, as well as to spread religion and instill religious values. In order to help pupils prepare for existence, there was a framework for teaching both theoretical and practical knowledge with religious instruction, so that when they joined everyday life, they could be able to support themselves.   Three key ideas—discipline, meditation, and wisdom—make up the Buddha's teachings' core. Wisdom is the end objective, and the key step in achieving wisdom is deep meditation or concentration.  One can acquire profound meditation by discipline and precept observance; once wisdom is achieved, it will come easily.  The sutras' explanation of Buddha's overall teaching never truly veers away from these three ideas.
