2015-07-16 "On the Subject of Faith" 61:35
  Kate Munding
Tonight I will be giving a talk on the subject of faith. The Buddha talked about the different types of faith and how, as our practice evolves and our heart-mind becomes more clear, it is our verified faith that becomes a source of strength and refuge in the face of difficulty and life challenge. Unlike blind faith when one relays on what others tell them, the Buddha taught that we should “see for ourselves”, through practice and inquiry, what is truth and worth having faith in. We’ll explore all of this tonight.

We focus in this first session on Fourth Precept ("Right" or "Wise" Speech) on the four core ethical guidelines for speech (truthfulness, helpfulness, speaking from the heart, and good timing/appropriateness of the speech), in the context of the general importance of speech practice, suggesting a number of ways of practicing.
