 How shall I live?  This is the most fundamental of spiritual questions.  One aspect of our response to this question is ethics.  What should and should not be done?  The Sixteen Bodhisattva Precepts represent our aspiration to live an ethical life and our commitment to the continual inquiry that such a life demands.  The precepts are the wisdom of the Buddhas and Ancestors that already lives within our own heart.  This wisdom must be lived out moment to moment from a sincere heart rather than become rigid measures of right and wrong.  This is the invitation of the precepts!  In this eight class series we will explore and unfold the practice of precepts as the life of awakening.
