Living with Ethics

by Sangharakshita (2009)

Sangharakshita launches 'Living with Ethics' at FWBO Day 2009. He reflects on gratitude and looks at ethics and altruism.

Living ethically means more than just watching our intentions and mental states to determine their skilfulness. It also requires us to have imagination in how we treat others, and truly put ourselves in others' shoes. Here, Sangharakshita discusses the difference between horizontal and vertical imagination, seeing the world with the Divine Eye, and applying imagination as a door to nonduality and an ethical life.

Talk given at Birmingham Buddhist Center, 2009
