Sangha notes for 10-2-17

We discussed the differences between approaches to spirituality based on the Old Testament vs Buddhist teachings and vows.
Here is one version of Buddhism’s Four Great Vows:
“However innumerable sentient beings are; I vow to save them.
However inexhaustible the passions are; I vow to extinguish them.
However immeasurable the Dharmas are; I vow to study them.
However incomparable the Buddha-truth is; I vow to attain it.”
