For a Future to Be Possible

Buddhist Ethics for Everyday Life

The Five Mindfulness Trainings — to not kill, steal, commit adultery, lie, or take intoxicants — are the basic statement of ethics and morality in Buddhism. In a world marked by moral and spiritual emptiness, he says, The Five Mindfulness Trainings offer a path to the restoration of meaning and value. Thay calls the trainings a “diet for a mindful society” that transcends sectarian boundaries, and he presents simple yet powerful ways that people can come together around them to explore and sustain a sane, compassionate, and healthy way of living. Thich Nhat Hanh discusses in depth the value and meaning of each precept, offering insights into the roles that they could play in our changing society.
