‘I understand the precepts not as rules to follow, but more as, “Be very careful in this area of human life because there’s a lot of suffering there, so pay attention to what you’re doing.” Like a sign on a frozen pond that says, “Danger, thin ice,” rather than, “Shame on you!” Our vow is to help people end suffering, not to add to their suffering.’ (The Hidden Lamp)
One thought on “Zenkei Blanche Hartman”
Follow your conscience and inner most heart. Roll in around in your mind. Sit with it. Remember that others have human rights just like you. If you do these things regularly it will be hard to break the precepts.
