Continuing with the Tenzin Palmo teachings on the Six Paramitas which I began with 'Generosity or Dana' I'd now like to post what she has to say on 'Ethics'

Thanks Aloka - D.

Personally I have a bit a problem with some of Tenzing Palmo's core messages because many things she says are impossible to implement for our lay people and rural folks. They would rather feel guilty and discouraged by the idea that they are for example not allowed to kill insects or to get the only available proteins for their malnourished children by catching fish in Nepal's thousands of rivulets and rivers, lakes and and ponds.

As I stated before in some other forum threads: 65 % of our population lives from what surrounding nature provides to them. I did not mention that time that there are also almost 40 % malnourished children in Nepal and UNICEF sends food aid in order to keep them going. Vaccines and Malaria prophylaxes is part of the package. To eliminate a dozen or so horrible insect born disease amongst our people they give appropriate advice and remedies to the village administrators. :neutral:

However...I think it is very noble that Buddhist Monks and Nuns are strictly following the full catalog of these ethics.
