Than Hsiang Temple Eight Precepts Cultivation Day (Part II)

In Part I of this series we talked about taking the eight precepts at Than Hsiang Temple and also about the five and the eight precepts itself. Well as you know, the eight precepts day is a day when we try to live a simple life following the eight precepts instead of the normal daily five precepts. We also practice fasting, chanting, meditating and listening to dharma talks.

Kalyana Mitra Talk

I will briefly talk about the meaning of Kalyana Mitra. In a more simple and direct term Kalyana Mitra means a good spiritual friend. It is through a spiritual friend in the form of a human being that we come to contact with Buddhism. Of course, there are different grades as well as different levels of Kalyana Mitra. For example, the Buddha himself is the greatest Kalyana Mitra of all. If he had not decided to share his enlightenment experience, then we would not be sitting here today.
