Abstract

This qualitative research consists of three objectives: 1) to study the learning process in modern educational psychology; 2) to study the concept of Seed in Yogācāra Buddhism; 3) to propose a theoretical model of the learning process based on modern educational psychology and the concept of Seed in Yogācāra Buddhism. Findings show that theories in modern educational psychology have great disputes concerning the source of learning, the role of the learner and the faculty that enables learning. As the concept of Seed in Yogācāra Buddhism deals with the mechanism of the mind at a fundamental level, it helps the establishment of a theoretical model that explains learning process in an integral way in which Seeds and the manifest activities have an influence upon one another, known in this paper as Tri-interaction. As an extension, the model engages an effective learning process in which the function of Object Contingent and Wholesome Mental Factors is emphasized while that of the Unwholesome ones discouraged.
