The glue that holds everything together

     “In an outer sense, precepts are the ethical guidelines of sila first taught by the Buddha and kept by all Buddhist traditions. In an inner sense, precepts are the person you have become, the life you have lived, and the actions that you take. … And in an innermost sense, precepts are the universal, transpersonal moral glue that ties everything together.”
