An exploration of ethics for Order Members in their twenties & thirties.
Order Members practice different kinds of meditation, study many different texts and pursue different kinds of lifestyle. Perhaps the only practice we all have in common is the practice of the Ten Precepts.
The Ten Precepts are, therefore, not only important in themselves but also are an important source of unity for our Order. They encompass both Sila and Prajna, implying also both meditation and mindfulness. Together they constitute a truly comprehensive practice. As Dharmacharis and Dharmacharinis we need to continually engage with the Precepts, taking our practice of them further and deeper. That’s what this weekend will be about.
Ratnaghosha became a Buddhist on hearing about the five precepts and ethics have been central to his practice ever since. He’s lived out this practice in many residential communities, by working at Windhorse trading for many years and by chairing the Cambridge Buddhist Centre and the London Buddhist Centre at different points in his life. Join him and other order members in their twenties and thirties to delve deeper into the world of the precepts.
‘Millennials’ are typically defined as those born from 1981 to 1996. Order members born after 1996 (known as ‘Gen Z’) are also very welcome on this event! We’re calling this a ‘Millennial Order Seminar’ to move away from calling these gatherings ‘young order’ events!
