Be Mindful Today: #19 The crucial role of ethics

“Most Westerners drawn to the Buddha’s teachings are well-educated sorts with a post-Darwinian cultural outlook that regards moral values as largely arbitrary. This orientation, combined with the doctrineless influence that Zen has had on the West, has left many to underestimate the crucial role ethics plays in the Buddha’s prescription to heal ourselves.”
