Annual Precept Study: Feb 26th-May 14th

(Jukai, precept ceremony, is May 19th)

Click here for a copy of the Bodhisattva Precepts. We’ll be studying the precepts, as we do every year, in preparation for Jukai (taking the precepts and becoming a Buddhist).

Many of the precept classes this year will be led by senior members. We won’t focus on a single text, but any one of the texts found on this page can be useful (many people like the one by Diane Rizzetto).
