Precepts

The practice of taking and keeping the eight Mahayana precepts is a special practice of moral discipline that is performed with bodhichitta motivation. The essence of the practice is to take eight precepts – promising to abstain for twenty -four hours from eight actions: (1) killing, (2) stealing, (3) sexual activity, (4) lying, (5) taking intoxicants, (6) eating after lunch, (7) sitting on high or luxurious thrines or seats and (8) wearing ornaments, perfume, singing or dancing and so forth.

Our teacher Gen Kelsang Dornying will grant the precepts during a short ceremony in the morning at 6.30 am. You can eat one meal that day before 12.30pm, within your capacities and conditions.

This monthly event is free of charge.
