Description Contents
Choosing Simplicity discusses the precepts and lifestyle of fully ordained nuns within the Buddhist tradition. The ordination vows act as guidelines to promote harmony both within the individual and within the community by regulating and thereby simplifying one's relationships to other sangha members and laypeople , as well as to possessions, food, clothing, and shelter. More than a handbook for a Buddhist monastic life, this text offers guidelines to all who wish to conduct their day-to day lives more mindfully. Those who have not chosen to dwell in a religious community still need to live peacefully with their neighbours. Being clear about boundaries, motivations, and how actions may be interpreted by others can be helpful.
