Standard Design For Buddhist Temple Construction

Standard Design for Buddhist Temple Construction is a Chinese language text written by Dàoxuān in the early Tang Dynasty.

Famous quotes containing the words construction, temple, standard and/or design:

    There is, I think, no point in the philosophy of progressive education which is sounder than its emphasis upon the importance of the participation of the learner in the formation of the purposes which direct his activities in the learning process, just as there is no defect in traditional education greater than its failure to secure the active cooperation of the pupil in construction of the purposes involved in his studying.
    John Dewey (1859–1952)

    Praise to the Lord, the Almighty, who rules all creation!
    O my soul, worship the source of thy health and salvation!
    All ye who hear, Now to God’s temple draw near;
    Join me in glad adoration!
    Joachim Neander (1650–1680)

    Gentlemen, those confederate flags and our national standard are what has made this union great. In what other country could a man who fought against you be permitted to serve as judge over you, be permitted to run for reelection and bespeak your suffrage on Tuesday next at the poles.
    Laurence Stallings (1894–1968)

    What but design of darkness to appall?—
    If design govern in a thing so small.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)
