Taking of Precepts
Taking precepts is a step in making a commitment to our practice and to live our life in the bodhisattva way. That means my life is not for me, but for others.
The precepts are like a simple road map of a path we already know. By keeping them we can access these simple instructions on leading a correct life whenever we lose our direction.
