In Buddhism, spiritual practice is likened to a tripod whose 3 balanced legs hold a bowl steady & firm. The legs are the practices known in Pali as sila, samadhi and pañña, which can be translated into English ethical conduct (virtue), meditation and wisdom. They work together, helping to support the others. It is important to cultivate all three. Wisdom and meditation will not develop without virtue. We can't really practice meditation without practicing Right Conduct. Join me for a discussion on practicing Right Action/Conduct with a focus on the Third Percept "Not harming ourselves & others through our sexuality and sexual feelings."
A reminder about the Half Daylong this Saturday, June 29, 2013 – 9:00-1:00 pm. Pauletta, Rebecca, Deb and myself will be teaching. This is a great opportunity for a extended practice.
