Precepts are About Freedom

A Dharma talk at the IBMC Sunday service on Zoom 11/21/2021. Subodha talks about the problem with the modern temptation to view traditional Buddhism as repressive and unnecessary in the pursuit of a peaceful mind. He shows how the precepts, especially those kept by dedicated lay disciples of the Buddha on the four moon phases, are taken on voluntarily to emulate the way of life of the Noble Ones, those who have achieved liberation. In this light, the precepts are about freedom.
