Not About Being Good - Creative Mind

by Jnanavaca (2020)

Buddhist ethics are not about conforming to a set of conventions, not about ‘being good’ in order to gain rewards. Instead, living ethically springs from the awareness that other people are no different from yourself. You can actively develop this awareness, through cultivating love, clarity and contentment, which can ultimately help us to come into greater harmony with all that lives.

Jnanavaca, a senior Order member and President of the Cambridge Buddhist Centre, reflects on the nature of Buddhist ethics and the creative mind.
