The Buddha said that the precepts are gifts we give others and ourselves. They promote skillful living and are a sound foundation for healthy relationships. In this course, we will see how the five precepts for lay practitioners – non-killing, not taking what is not given, avoiding sensual misconduct, abstaining from false speech and abstaining from substances that cause heedlessness – are practically applied in our daily lives. We will explore the link between the precepts and wisdom, mindfulness and the practice of right action, livelihood and speech.
