Meditate after Work: 27 July 22′ Teachings Recap

Is it okay to ever tell a lie? What is defined as a lie? Actions give results. If someone lies they will be reborn in a bad destination. Not only that, but their words will lose their value, and people will lose trust in them. It will also have an impact on your family and work life – as well as your overall happiness. On the other hand, a person who refrains from telling lies and always tells the truth will achieve good results in this life; and will be reborn in a good destination after death.

🌟 Honesty is a very important virtue to cultivate, and while it is not always easy, it will undoubtedly help you to escape from suffering and realise the ultimate Truth. You will also learn inspiring stories about how the Bodhisatva and great Arahants practiced this quality.

🧘‍♂️ For the meditation, devotees were taught how to develop mindfulness on the breath and were guided through a breathing meditation.

Listen to this entire sermon, to never tell a lie again 🤫
