Precepts

Postby Cittasanto » Mon Sep 13, 2010 9:31 pm

after some work, I have compiled a PDF on the precepts (my renderings at times so sorry if they are poor.)
so if anyone has some use for it, comments, sugestions, corrections etc., please have a look and share your thoughts.
Blog, Suttas, Aj Chah, Facebook.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

When I click the link, a new window opens and "Done" appears at bottom left as if it's opened something, but the screen is blank?
"To reach beyond fear and danger we must sharpen and widen our vision. We have to pierce through the deceptions that lull us into a comfortable complacency, to take a straight look down into the depths of our existence, without turning away uneasily or running after distractions." -- Bhikkhu Bodhi

"No man ever steps in the same river twice, for it's not the same river and he's not the same man." -- Heraclitus

Thanks for the pdf :anjali:

I must note however that the font used on page 5 and 6 is not the most readable one.

Did you use LaTeX btw?
Suffering is asking from life what it can never give you.


mindfulness, bliss and beyond (page 8) wrote:Do not linger on the past. Do not keep carrying around coffins full of dead moments


If you see any unskillful speech (or other action) from me let me know, so I can learn from it.
