Key concepts include "the law of cause and effect", the "five precepts" and "ten good conducts". The teachings come from the Pure Land school of Buddhism and utilizes six steps of cultivation which are tools that enable meditation and peace of mind:1. Being Vegetarian 2. Chanting the Sutra of the Past Vows of the Earth Store Bodhisattva 3. Prostrating in accordance with the "Eighty-Eight Repentance Ceremony" 4. Releasing and feeding animals 5. Conducting one good deed a day 6. Reciting the name of the Amitabha Buddha. As we cultivate together, participants will have a good basic understanding of Buddhism and have the tools necessary to embark on becoming a buddhist practitioner if they decide to pursue this path. At the least, participants will have experience a nice break from daily life and a relaxing day getaway a peaceful environment.
