I just want to say that I’m grateful for having the opportunity to read this book. BIG THANKS!
Dear Alan, thank you for your encouraging note!
Great book, it has convinced me to take the 5 precepts. Thank you.
My wife and I managed to get this book “One Life, Five Precepts” when we attended the 2 Sunday Service cum Dharma Talks at Manjusri Secondary School given by Venerable Faxun. We find the talk as well as the book very informative and enlightening. Really appreciate for the good work being done.
Dear Ap and Mr Cho, thank you for your encouraging words! I will share them with Ven. Faxun and the project team. Please keep your feedback coming!
I’m very grateful for Ven. Shi Faxun’s book One Life, Five Precepts; I’ve found it very helpful. I hope that many people have the opportunity to read it and practice with it. Some other modern books on the precepts that I also recommend (and I mention them here in case any other practitioners read this and are looking for more books on the precepts) include: Interbeing by Thich Nhat Hanh (1987), For a Future to Be Possible by Thich Nhat Hanh and others (1993), The Heart of Being by John Daido Loori (1996), An Introduction to Buddhist Ethics by Peter Harvey (2000), Being Upright by Reb Anderson (2001), Waking Up to What You Do by Diane Eshin Rizzetto (2005), and The Engaged Spiritual Life by Donald Rothberg (2006).
