Launch of The Essential Sangharakshita and Living Ethically

by Sangharakshita (2009)

Sangharakshita launches two new books, 'The Essential Sangharakshita', and 'Living Ethically', at FWBO Day 2009.

Here Sanghgarakshita discusses the origin of the material for 'The Essential Sangharakshita' and the process of writing it. He then talks about Nagarjuna's importance in Buddhism in bringing the 'Perfection of Wisdom' sutras to light, and in creating the 'Ratnamala', which is the basis of 'Living Ethically'. He further expands on the importance of keeping the precepts and understanding sila (ethics).
