Summary

"The Five Mindfulness Trainings (also referred to as "Precepts")-not to kill, steal, commit adultery, lie or take intoxicants-are the basic statement of ethics and morality in Buddhism. In this fully revised edition, Zen Master and peace activist Thich Nhat Hanh argues eloquently for their applicability for both our daily lives and on a global scale. He discusses the value and meaning of each precept, offering insights into the role that they could play in our changing society. Thich Nhat Hanh calls the trainings a "diet for a mindful society". With this book he offers a valuable contribution to the debate, transcending sectarian boundaries, on how we can come together to define moral guidelines that will allow us to explore and sustain a sane, compassionate and healthy way of living. The Five Mindfulness Trainings offer a path to restoring meaning and value in a world marked by moral and spiritual emptiness. Whether called virtues, ethics, moral conduct or precepts they are guidelines for living without bringing harm to others; they bring sanity and light into the world."
