Buddhist Ethics

Talk: Buddhist Ethics

Professor Thurman discusses Buddhist ethics, which he translates as the ten-fold path of skillful and unskillful action. Instead of right and wrong, Professor Thurman urges us to consider ethical behavior as any action that helps us evolve on the path toward enlightenment. He provides a blue print for those seeking to bring spiritual values into the workplace and beyond.
