Book coverWaking Up to What You Do: A Zen Practice for Meeting Every Situation with Intelligence and Compassion by Diane Eshin Rizzetto

If you think of the Precepts as a sort of Buddhist Ten Commandments, Diane Rizzetto may change your view. She sees the precepts as, above all, a practice. Rather than keeping your behavior in line, they cause you to be conscious of your actions in a profound way. Living morally becomes a moment-to-moment exercise in being conscious of the situation and the people before you.
