A Western Buddhist's Travels

Sightseeing & detours on the path of enlightenment

October 22, I am starting a spiritual walk, that I am calling a Layman’s walk in the forest. While not a Buddhist spring retreat, it is similar in my goal to become a better person.

During this time I will observe the 5 precepts.

  • Refrain from destroying living beings;
  • Refrain from taking what is not given;
  • Refrain from sexual misconduct;
  • Refrain from false speech; and
  • Refrain from taking intoxicants.

This means I will be sticking to a vegetarian diet, which is a change for me.

    I am enjoying your blog. I appreciate that you aren’t trying to convert me, so to speak. I find that reading you posts and applying them to my own faith, has caused me to wince a few times. I share your goal of becoming a better person. Thanks and keep poking.
