Classes / (Class #12) Precepts are Mindfulness

Br Pháp Lưu

Dear friends,

In tonight’s class Thay Phap Luu will discuss the 12th tenet: “Precepts are mindfulness. (Śīla is smṛti). Precepts and mindful manners are concrete expressions of mindfulness.”

This class is based on a book written by our teacher called “Làng Mai nhìn núi Thứu” or “Plum Village Looks at Vulture’s Peak” (an English translation is currently in progress but not yet available). The book describes the essential characteristics of Plum Village practice and teachings.

For an English translation of the tenets themselves, follow this link: https://orderofinterbeing.org/2016/07/forty-tenets-of-plum-village/
