We have one week left of our annual Membership Drive and have welcomed 56 new members to the Zen Center community. That means we’re 44 members away from reaching our goal of enrolling 100 members in 30 days.
Abiding Abbess of Green Gulch Farm Furyu Schroeder comments on Right Speech.
Q: What is the Buddhist precept on right speech?
Fu Schroeder: There are several of them: A disciple of Buddha does not lie, does not praise self at the expense of others, and does not slander.
Dear Dharma Friends,
Today’s fast-paced and painfully polarized world presents special challenges for all of us committed to the Dharma practice of “right speech.” For most of us this is particularly true in the digital realm where there is a strong impulse to react immediately.
