On Wednesday 4 May, Sis. Buddhini Tan gave a sharing on the “Importance of keeping the Five Precepts” after the weekly group sitting. She related a story about how a young trader stopped himself from killing his wife and her lover through mindfulness, and who later even became a monk. The monk practised loving-kindness for many years and finally freed himself totally from grief, anger and enmity.
When we keep the Five Precepts properly, we ennoble our own lives in the process and develop the qualities of compassion, respect, truthfulness and mindfulness. Hence, it strengthens our spiritual practice and ensures a life of integrity and peace. We thank Sis. Buddhini for the insightful sharing. Sadhu anumodana!
