    As Free as Air

    I enjoyed listening to this talk given by Ajahn Amaro at Amaravati Monastery, in which he discusses the Eight Precepts and what they're based on, and how we should examine our habits and impulses.(approx. 29 minutes)

    "The root of our way of life is the pure heart."

    Nice talk!

    Even when I tend to follow the eight precepts as a consequence of having Zazen during the day the one of the food is really hard for me to follow it strictly. I really cant do one and only one food for all the day. I'm trying to eat less... small amounts of food after noon and a little soup before going to sleep; that is the precept I follow for food inclinations.
