Keeping

When we are not keeping our precepts we have precepts, but when we keep almost all the precepts, the precepts: do not kill, do not steal -- Perhaps if you do not know what is your law -- lawyer might be annoyed but almost all of us do not know what is law. But when we do not know what is precepts, we are keeping them. And even though you have problem that problem will vanish when your practice is healthy.  ------------------------------------------------------------------ Excerpt from Shunryu Suzuki lecture 67-08-00 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,
