To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

The Nature of Buddhist Ethics, by Damien Keown, is a fine read. He plays a tad fast and loose with the Theravada-Mahayana textual divide, but the point he makes about the pairing of Sila-Panna is worth reading over. I'd get it from a library, rather than buy it.

Peter Harvey is a good author elsewhere (The Selfless Mind), but I'm not certain of his ethical thought. I have one of his books in my to-read pile, I'll get back to you.

You might also like the Journal of Buddhist Ethics at .
(This isn't where it used to be and doesn't look much like it used to look. Anyone know what's going on?)

Hello Kim, all,

I searched on Google for the Journal of Buddhist Ethics: http://jbe.la.psu.edu

And one of the results said this:
1. 913 - CAN - Collections Australia Network - Collections
http://www.collectionsaustralia.net/col ... rch.php?...
Records 9121 - 9130 of 64364 – ISSN: 1076-9005 http://scorpio.gold.ac.uk/jbe/jbe.html http://jbe.la.psu.edu Link no longer valid as of May 23, ...

Huge website though and couldn’t find the bit above.

With metta

Thanks, Cooran,
I did a bit more poking around on the net. Every link that doesn't end up in a dead end points to the site I found - which is hosted by Dickinson College , down the road from Penn State University which used to host the Journal.
This site - - says it has all of the JBE online but I haven't tried to register on it.

But I didn't find any explanation for the changes. :shrug:
