Mahayana Precepts

15th day of the month, 7:00 - 7:30am

When we take precepts we have an opportunity to go inwards and focus on the practice of moral discipline, or non-harmfulness. This gentle practice is a way to cleanse our mind of negativity and fortify it through the practice of mindfulness. After we take precepts during the morning chanted prayers, we then practice fasting (we eat one meal only, for the day) and observe moral discipline throughout the day. Detailed instructions for this practice are provided in person, do not partake of any food in the morning before attending. Questions at: education@meditationinphiladelphia.org
