Pancha Sila The Five Precepts
Pancha Sila The Five Precepts
Description
Back of the Book:

Buddhism is considered by many to be more than just a religion. Its founder and teacher, Siddhartha Gautama, was the earthly saint who postulated the Buddhist ideas, becoming the Buddha, Shakyamuni.

But is Buddhism a true religion? In reality it is more a philosophical path; a way of thinking to unlock a route or direction, to rise above the transitory nature of physical life. Buddhism, in its purest form, offers a way forward for the conscious mind. For a Buddhist, a lifetime of self-analysis, meditation and right thought may be needed to discern the truths of life.

In these pages Bhikkhu Silacara gives an outline of the five (panch) precepts laid down by Lord Buddha. It explains in detail the main ideas behind each of the five basic concepts, the Panch Sila. Some of the main sources of wisdom and knowledge are to be found within these.

But what are the Pancha Sila and how do they relate to the Buddha? This small book clearly answers these questions.

Preface to the New Edition

Although Buddhism is one of the world's major religions, its ideals and intricacies are not so easily understood. This small booklet about Buddhism, written by Bhikkhu Silacara, is a simple book translating some the Buddha's ideas and philosophies.

" He found the cause of the world pain to lie simply and entirely in the deeds and doings of men themselves."

It has often been commented that the lands that encompass Buddhism as a national faith have a certain ambience. This is not in the physical, but the spiritual, aspects and is manifested through the conduct of their citizens.

Does this culturally defined trait have a link to the Buddhist ideals of the inhabitants?

The booklet offers us a view of the five great tenets of Buddhism, namely the Pancha or Five precepts that form part of the basis of Buddhist thought. It is the concentration on these deeds and ideas that enables the practitioner to advance in his quest. This book relates the purest form of Buddhism from which other paths have sprung.

What are these Five Precepts that we shall discover?
Bhikkhu Silacara has defined the teachings of the Buddha in this brief but explicit booklet. It is to be hoped that the messages of the Buddha ignite a desire for a better world.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied.
