Introduction to the Precepts - Jyoshin Clay

This is the first of a six week class series on the Precepts, the moral and ethical guidelines that shape our zen practice. These are not deemed to be "commandments"; rather they can be used as koans and questions with which to examine our life and behavior, helping to guide us towards skillful action and the cultivation of compassion. There are no required readings other than the Kyojukaimon which will be recited as our evening service and will be made available to class attendees.
