Ep. 9 – The Six Guidelines, Part 4

Master Hua Emphasized one set of teachings above all others – The Six Guidelines. These guidelines, based on Precepts, guide one towards cultivating the Mind Ground. By watching one’s mind as a gardener tends to crops, one can begin to practice skilful discrimination of certain virtues and attitudes that encourage stillness of mind. In this Episode, we hear from Rev. Heng Sure that Master Hua’s fourth guideline of “no lying” was a fundamental part of the social contract we hold with each other.
