2014.01.04 The Eleven Universal Agents [Part 4]

Discussion Topics

  1. Master explains that we must not only follow the Precepts, but we must also NOT follow other Precepts from different Buddhist and non-Buddhist understandings.  Please share Master's explanation why this is so...(please review transcript).  Please share your thoughts. 
  2. "If we are not willing to understand our own true cause or accept our own precepts, then it is wrong."  As future Commissioners and Faith Corps Members, what will other volunteer's think or believe when we ourselves do not accept or follow Tzu Chi's Ten Precepts? What is our responsibility? Please share your thoughts on this...
  3. Master explains the horror of today's society as it relates to one family's suffering due to their child's aggressive behavior.  [On average, an American child will see 200,00 violent acts and 16,000 murders on TV by age 18.] "he scariest thing is our minds. When greed and delusion arise, greed for illusions causes biased attachment."  How do you think following the correct Precepts guards our minds against society's chaos? Can you share one example?
