The pratimoksha vows or vows of ‘individual liberation’ mainly emphasize disciplining one’s physical behavior and not harming others. Pratimoksha discipline is called the foundation of Buddhism because for ordinary people physical discipline is the beginning of spiritual training and the basis of spiritual progress. The lay vows consist of taking the five lay vows which are: 1)not to kill, 2) not to steal, 3) not to lie, 4) not to commit sexual misconduct, and 5) not to take any intoxicants. The format will consist of a teaching session by Lama Matthew Rice and ending with the refuge ceremony given by Geshe Thinley. No fees but dana to the teacher is suggested. After the service we will have a potluck, so please bring dish to share.
Preceptor: Geshe Lharampa Tsewang Thinley and Lama Matthew Rice (Lobpön Palden Gocha)
Dates: One session on Sunday July 15, 2018
Prerequisite: Tier 1 Classes and Refuge Vows
