If you are seeking to live your life through right vision and incorporating more good into your life you’ll enjoy The Kalama Sutra and its teachings. This teaching encourages free inquiry. It has been said that it is also “exempt of fanaticism, bigotry, dogmatism, intolerance and more.” In this new workbook and blog series I am going to share with you some ideas on how to live that life through your thoughts and actions each and every day.
The Kalamas were a group of people who lived in a town called Kesaputta during the time Shakyamuni Buddha walked the earth. Many came to see him teach and asked him questions. The Sutra shares the questions and the answers. I hope you enjoy the conversation!
Many wonderful teachers, translators, and authors have divided this sutra into several different topic areas that are listed below. We will be taking each topic and discovering what it means in our lives, how we can live it, and what will happen for us when we do. If this type of inquiry excites you I hope you’ll join me on this new adventure in Buddhism.
