Vows

General discussion, particularly exploring the Dharma in the modern world.
[N.B. This is the forum that was called ‘Exploring Buddhism’. The new name simply describes it better.]

Vows

It is said that an action performed under vow is more beneficial than one done spontaneously.
I'm not convinced. What is the value of taking vows?
People will know nothing and everything
Remember nothing and everything
Think nothing and everything
Do nothing and everything

Depends on capacity, commitment and integrity. Without those it is as much value as a fortune cookie . . . :namaste:
