Precepts Mondo

with Geoffrey Shugen Arnold, Roshi

February 7, 2019

Be giving; Do not steal

The moral and ethical teachings of the Buddha touch every area of our lives. The extent to which these principles permeate our relationships and actions is enhanced by our understanding of them. This new series of Q&A style monthly mondos features MRO teachers facilitating open discussions about the Ten Grave Precepts as they relate to lay practice.

The Precepts Mondos offer an opportunity to work more informally with the MRO teachers and are open to all practitioners.

Suggested donation $10-$15.
