BAM kicked off at Friends Night this week with a simple dedication ritual, led by Lilasiddhi. One of the activities sangha members are participating in is the taking of personal precepts to live simply during the month. At Friends Night each person wrote their precept on a paper leaf and placed it on the tree. Personal precepts ranged from giving away a bag of clothes each week to eliminating meat consumption to working on reducing gun violence. In keeping with the intent of BAM, the tree was made out of recycled cardboard pizza boxes and the origami leaves were made out of old catalogues.

The tree and leaves will be kept up through the month; if you’d like to add your personal precept to the tree, you can do so the next time you are at Aryaloka.
