The study was found as follows: 1) The usage of media and communication equipment by him, appearing in the media and books, was counted on his journey to propagate the Buddha’s teachings in several provinces of Thailand, including other media. Apart from the interview, Phra Rājavajirasudhī, like most Buddhist monks in Thailand, went bowling in earlier morning, made a morning sermon, taugh lay persons the Buddha’s teaching in the holy days, made an evening sermon and suggested new monks and novices the appropriate ecclesiastical routines.

As a result, those people heard understanding the Dhamma and able to follow his teaching based on the true doctrine (Saddhamma): Pariyatti, Patipatti and Pativeda. 3) The integration of media and communication equipment to his teaching of Life Coach and Performance according to Buddhist Science was distinctly seen from the evidence that his media, including several communication tools, were applied to the student’s skills based on 5 knowledge standards of Mahamakut Buddhist University. That was to say, (1) the moral and ethical skill: the Buddhist principles of loving-kindness and compassion, etc., were  integrated to integrate of learning and teaching in order to have the students show loving-kindness and compassion to  their classmates.  (2) The knowledge skill: the knowledge base from Ātittapariyāyasutta, for instance, was taken to solve the problems on the student’s inappropriate view and to generate their positive attitude. (3) The wisdom skill was integrated to the systematical analysis. (4) The skills of personal relation and responsibility were integrated to team work and public hearing among students. (5) The skills of numerical analysis, communication and information technological literacy were integrated to the students’ skills of speaking, reading, listening, writing, presentation and communication to several people in an appropriate manner.
