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.

  • Auxiliary vows 8-16 are to eliminate obstacles to the far-reaching practice of ethical discipline. Abandon:
    • 8. Forsaking those who have broken their ethical discipline: not giving them advice or not relieving their guilt.

    • 9. Not acting in accord with your pratimoksa precepts.

    • 10. Doing only limited actions to benefit sentient beings, such as strictly keeping the Vinaya rules in situations when not doing so would be of greater benefit to others.
