Venerable Saddhatissa starts with an examination of Western notions of ethics beginning with the early Greek philosophers, and goes on to show us how the study of morality is crucial to a clear understanding of the Buddhist tradition. Drawing on an array of Buddhist texts, he explains the development and position of Buddhist precepts from a traditional perspective, while simultaneously offering clear and practical advice on how best to live the moral life of a lay practitioner.
