with Will Handy
May 12 / 1:30 PM - May 12 / 3:30 PM

The Ten Unvirtuous Actions and the Ten Meritorious Actions


The teachings of the Buddha are as illuminating as they were 2,500 years ago!  Consisting of simple pieces, the teachings provide a guide that can help us experience our life with greater calm and insight and with less stress and anxiety.  The Dallas Shambhala Center will present a series of classes that will provide us with a closer look at the traditional Buddhist Path. 

Our class will present The Ten Unvirtuous Actions and their counterparts, The Ten Meritorious Actions. In the practice of Buddhism there is the view, there is meditation, and there is conduct.

Whatever type of vows one undertakes there are ten actions to be avoided or given up and ten actions  to practice or embrace. One avoids the ten negative or unvirtuous actions because they are harmful to oneself and harmful to others. One practices the ten positive or virtuous actions because they are beneficial to oneself and beneficial to others.

Join us as we explore the wisdom and ethics of Buddhism.  You can appreciate and incorporate these teachings into your life without being a Buddhist.
