Next week, we will continue our discussion of the precepts with a discussion of the second precept which is most concisely expressed as I vow not to take what is not given.
This can be expressed as a positive intention – To the best of my ability I will endeavor to be open-hearted and generous.
One commentary on this:
This precept expresses our commitment to live from a generous heart rather than from an avaricious mind. At a personal level, avaricious behavior harms the person who steals; on a community level, stealing can harm or even destroy the opportunity and the environment for practice.
There are a wealth of other resources on the web about this subject. Please share anything that you enjoy with the group.
The schedule is:
6:00 – 6:30 sitting
6:30 – 7:15 discussion
7:15 – 7:30 sitting
The sitting takes place at BIBS – location in the sidebar.
