Part of EBMC’s Core Buddhist Teachings – 5 month Curriculum

One year ago, people in the United States were hoarding toilet paper and steaks. Today we’re dealing with volatile ethical issues such as to mask or not to mask? – “Cut in line” to vaccinate or not? Rooted in EBMC’s mindfulness-based, diversity-equity-inclusion and social justice-centered mission, this four-class series offers a path to reflect on current ethical discernment and action. Buddhist life, for both laypersons and monastics, is rooted in Five Precepts, guidelines that are paths of deep contemplative investigation resulting in behaviors and actions aligned toward non-harm, in the service of all life. The compassionate realization of our “interbeing,” and the sometimes complex relationship of intent to impact are woven into this “Living Dharma” approach to the Precepts.
