How to be a Real True Buddhist
observing the Noble Training Rules?
2533 years ago, The Buddha spoke
his first speech
rolling the wheel of Dhamma, which cannot be stopped by anyone,
ascetic or priest or god or mara or brahma or by any being at all in this
world! Thereby was the Four Noble Truths and the Noble Eightfold Way made to be known
Any Lay Buddhist simply joins the
Precepts like this: Newly bathed, shaved, white-clothed,
with clean bare feet, one kneels at a shrine with a Buddha-statue,
and bows first three times, so that feet, hands, elbows, knees and
head touch the floor. Then, with joined palms in front of the heart,
one recite these memorized lines in a loud, calm & steady voice just
like this recording:
