Dharma Discourse by Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Sensei
Going after what we want drives most of our activity, yet it is also at the root of all suffering. In this talk, Shugen Sensei looks at how the Buddhist Precepts address this. Much more than prescriptions for good behavior, they offer a way to true peace.
This talk was offered during Fusatsu, a ceremony in which the sangha comes together to renew the Bodhisattva Vows. Within the ceremony, the officiant offers a talk on the Precepts. This talk was given during Fustatsu at the Zen Center of New York City on April 12, 2012.
