|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every month that begins at 6:15 am on day 15 of the month, repeating until December 16, 2021

The practice of taking and keeping the eight Mahayana precepts is a special practice of moral discipline that is performed with compassionate bodhichitta motivation – the supreme good heart. The essence of the practice is to take eight precepts – promising to abstain for twenty-four hours from eight actions: (1) killing, (2) stealing, (3) sexual activity, (4) lying, (5) taking intoxicants, (6) eating after lunch, (7) sitting on high or luxurious thrones or seats, and (8) wearing ornaments, perfume, singing and dancing and so forth – and to keep them purely for 24 hours.
