Taking Lay Bodhisattva Precepts

Postby Nicholas Weeks » Fri Jan 31, 2014 6:34 pm

In late July-early August, at the City of 10,000 Buddhas, lay folks may formally take the Bodhisattva precepts.

Not certain, but this list is probably the precepts to be taken:

A man should not judge a man, for he harms himself very quickly, that man who judges a man. Only I or someone like me can assess a man.

BDK also has a translation of the Upasaka Precepts Sutra, but here is chapter 14 by Rulu giving more regarding the lay precepts:
