What does toilet paper hoarding have to do with Buddhist ethics? Based in EBMC’s mindfulness-based, diversity-equity-inclusion and social justice-centered mission, this four-class series offers a path to reflect on the bases of ethical discernment and action. Buddhist life, for both laypersons and monastics, is rooted in Five Precepts, or ethical 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 current events-based study of the Precepts.
