The Ten Pillars of Buddhism are ten ethical precepts—such as generosity, truthfulness, or compassion—that together provide a comprehensive moral guide. This book by Sangharakshita provides a fascinating insight for anyone interested in leading an ethical or Buddhist life.
Description for this individual work coming soon.
This work is based on a lecture series.
One of Sangharakshita’s outstanding contributions to Buddhism has been to survey the whole range of Buddhist schools, each with its own approach, own language and so on, and to distil out what is most fundamental. You are a Buddhist because – and only because – you Go for Refuge to the Three Jewels. But how did this become clear to him and what in any case does it actually mean practically to go for Refuge to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha? The nine texts in this volume, composed over a period of more than thirty years, show Sangharakshita’s unfolding insight into the meaning, significance and centrality of Going for Refuge.
