Five Precept Observance Group

Postby Khalil Bodhi » Wed Jul 31, 2013 11:53 pm

Everyone,

I have just created a group dedicated to the observance of the Five Precepts here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/fiveprecepts/?hc_location=stream Please feel free to request to join and someone will add you. Here is a brief description of the group:

A group dedicated to the observance of the Five Precepts (Pancasila). A safe place for fellow Dhamma-farers to confess their faults, discuss their difficulties and find mutual support in kalyana-mittas (spiritual friends).


Bhavatu sabba mangalam! Every good blessing!
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.
-Dhp. 183

Thanks Mike, an excellent idea.
kind regards,

Ben
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Thank you Ben! I hope it will prove as useful to everyone else as it is for me.
