Video of the Right Action Dharma Talk
This is an introductory talk on Right Action from the Buddha’s Noble Eightfold Path. For a full explanation of the path be sure to checkout: https://zenawakened.com/eightfold-path/
In this weeks Dharma talk we explored a topic that so many teachers and students just gloss over.. But in doing so you’re missing out on one of the most integral parts of the path.
Ethics and morality aren’t sexy. There’s no glitz or glam to it. No mystery. No real intrigue or curiosity entices us to explore it deeply. There’s no fancy mantra’s, no specific visualizations, no auspicious meditations or rituals to perform.
But in Buddhism it’s a fundamental aspect of the path. So much so that it falls under the category of the Threefold Training or as it’s sometimes referred to, the Threefold Practice.

(Dana) Giving: The practice of giving is universally recognized as one of the most basic human virtues, a quality that testifies to the depth of one’s humanity and one’s capacity for self-transcendence. In the teaching of the Buddha, too, the practice of giving claims a place of special eminence, one which singles it out as being in a sense the foundation and seed of spiritual development.
