For many years, I studied and practiced and thought I understood. But then I broke some of the precepts through heedlessness and hurt others and myself. I realized I was not really heeding the heart of the Buddhadhamma. So I''ve recently taken the 8 Lifetime Precepts at the Therevadan monastery I go to and am redoubling my efforts. How do we work with our fallibility and and unwholesome errors in life without being dragged down by them? I suppose we must vow to begin anew in the present moment. Any kindred experiences of working with one's fallibility are welcome.
