Freedom Wherever We Go: A Buddhist Monastic Code for the Twenty-First Century

by Thich Nhat Hanh - £13.50  Parallax Press (2004)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781888375442 | ISBN 10: 1888375442

In 'Freedom Wherever We Go', Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh takes the centuries-old Buddhist monastic code, the Pratimoksha, and updates it for the twenty-first century. "The Buddha," Thich Nhat Hanh says, "needs courageous disciples to make this revolutionary step." The Buddhist equivalent of the rules of Saint Benedict, the Pratimoksha defines and organizes the conduct of monastics and of the monastic community. The guidelines in this book emphasize right conduct, mindfulness, openheartedness, and clear communication. This is the first time that this text is available to lay practitioners and non-monastic readers. With the full text of the Pratimoksha guidelines, as well as the ceremonies and practices associated with it, 'Freedom Wherever We Go' is an opportunity to discover and learn from the integrity, simplicity, beauty and freedom of monastic life. It can be an inspiration for all of us, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, to go in the direction of living our daily lives with compassion, love and understanding.
