Vows as Koans – Part 1: I Vow to Do No Harm
Allison Atwill, Jesse Cardin, Tess Beasley
What does “pure” mean in relation to vows? What emerges when the field widens—to include what might harm me, or what I would like to separate from? In boundless possibility, we enter the vastness of “the cave where the teachings of all Buddhas have their source.” Talks by all three teachers, from The Three Pure Vows as Enduring Koans of Everyday Life: Part 1 of a 3-part series on the vows of our tradition. Complete session, as recorded June 7, 2021.
