Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Part of a series of talks on the bodhisattva ethical restraints. The talks from January 3 through March 1, 2012, are concurrent with the 2011-2012 Vajrasattva Winter Retreat at Sravasti Abbey.

  • For the winter retreatants, a reminder of the preciousness of the opportunity to do retreat
  • Vows 12-14 are to avoid:
    • 12. Causing those who have entered the Mahayana to turn away from working for the full awakening of Buddhahood and encouraging them to work merely for their own liberation from suffering.

    • 13. Causing others to abandon completely their precepts of self-liberation and embrace the Mahayana.

    • 14. Holding and causing others to hold the view that the Fundamental Vehicle does not abandon attachment and other delusions.
