Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Sep 19, Melanie rated it liked it Shelves: But, if it isn’t vigorous and beautiful, we don’t blame the tree. We observe it in order to understand why it fuorteen growing well.
Perhaps we have not taken good care of it. We know it is funny to blame a lemon tree, but we do blame human beings when they are not growing well. Because our brothers, sisters, and children are humans, we think they should “Our own life is the instrument through which we experiment with truth” p. Because our brothers, sisters, and children are humans, we think they should behave in certain ways. But human beings are not very different from lemon trees.
If we take good care of them, they will grow properly. Only love and understanding can help people change. If we take good care of people, we will be rewarded by their pleasantness.
Is this much different from the rewards we receive from our lemon tree? If you have the opportunity, please use your energy to improve both” p.
The answer is not to stop having children, but to make the world a better place” p. However, through compassionate dialogue, help others renounce fanaticism and narrowness” Third Precept. Jun 02, Jayme rated it it was ok. The first section of this book lists, then provides an overview of, the 14 precepts developed by guiselines author for a Buddhist social justice organisation he led during in Vietnam during the war there.
The commentary is interesting, but not compelling. I didn’t find that that concepts were easily applicable to my own life. The second part of the book provides instruction for the ritualized chanting of these precepts – again, not terribly useful.
Jul 17, Joeri Kooimans rated it really liked it Shelves: This book offers valuable insights for those interested in bringing certain Buddhist-insights into practice. It can help people to show the way on how to really alleviate suffering through practical action, inspired by Buddhist-philosophy.
It’s applicable to modern life, encouraging us to find ways to alleviate suffering in our daily lifes as part of our livelihood, occupation and consumption.
With this Buddhism can transcend the realm of the meditationhalls. Jul 13, Tom Darrow rated it really liked it.
Contains an explanation of fourteen guidelines for Busshism, but they are ideas that almost anyone would benefit from and live a better life. That makes up the first half of the book. The second half, which consists of scripts for religious ceremonies, is what I view as being filler, or an attempt to justify a higher price for a book.
Jun 17, T. Excellent study guide for the Fourteen Guidelines.
