Precept 8

Do not withhold material and spiritual possessions. People talk about material or spiritual possessions. If you want to keep this precept in its true sense, it is necessary for you to talk about possession. Whose possession? It doesn't matter for you who has how much money. So we should not be concerned about others' property or money. This is actually what we mean - do not withhold material and spiritual possessions.    ------------------------------------------------------------------- Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-06-12 as found on shunryusuzuki.com. Edited by DC - Many Shunryu Suzuki lecture excerpts on cuke.com - from there links to much more. Going slowly through Suzuki transcripts featuring whatever is next that seems okay, not just the super cool ones,
