Advice for Navigating The Path

Buddhism Now posted a great page containing advice for following The Path. Some guidelines include:

  • Reflecting upon the nature of cause and effect will encourage us to avoid unskillful and unwise actions.
  • Avoid those actions which harm the mind and impede spiritual development.
  • Freedom from desire and attachment is necessary if we wish to be free of suffering.
  • Refrain from harming any living thing.
  • Eating meat is like eating one’s own children.
  • We should consider that all sentient beings are no other than the Buddha himself.
  • Refrain from earning a living by means of deceit and theft.
  • Unless all ambitions are eradicated, we are likely to fall into the error of allowing ourselves to be dominated by worldly motives.
