At or near each full moon each month, in lieu of the regular Sunday dharma discussion, we renew our commitment to practicing the Buddhist Precepts, which involves a short and musical chant, followed by a discussion of what is coming forward for each of us around this topic. The format we generally us is that of San Francisco Zen Center (you can read it here), but the dharma discussion leader for the day often brings a different version of format to enrich out perspective and conversation.

The precepts in our usual format are:

We take refuge in Buddha.
We take refuge in Dharma.
We take refuge in Sangha.

We vow not to harm. 
We vow to do good.
We vow to help others to do good.

We vow to affirm life and not kill.
We vow to be giving and not take what is not freely given.
We vow to honor the body and not engage in sexual misconduct.
We vow to manifest truth and not speak falsely.
We vow to proceed clearly and not cloud the mind with intoxicants.
We vow to see only our own faults and not discuss the faults of others.
We vow to know self and other as one and not praise oneself at others’ expense.
We vow to share generously and not spare the Dharma assets.
We vow to actualize harmony and not indulge in anger.
We vow to know intimacy with all things and not defame the Three Treasures.
