Right Action in the 21st Century

by Peter Carlson on February 23, 2012

Continuing the exploration of how to increase the relevance of Buddhist wisdom in our era, this discussion explored the relationship between the concept of kamma (karma) and action.  Emphasis was placed on using mindfulness to restrain impulsive action in order to promote behavior that cultivates kindness and compassion.  This was related to current personal, cultural and spiritual conditions.  This sets a foundation for thorough exploration of Right Livelihood in the next few talks.
