This is the second talk in a series on the Six Paramitas at the Glasgow Buddhist Centre in Summer 2012.

In this talk Dassini looks at the idea that 'the practice of ethics is grounded in Perfect Wisdom' from Living Ethically. She explores how the root defilements of craving, aversion and ignorance are the reasons for us needing an ethical practice.

She also discusses how freeing oneself from fixed self view is an essential fuel to ethical practice and looks at confession and the positive mental events of hri and apatrapya.

Thanks for this talk. I particularly liked the image of the child on a beach whose sandcastle has washed away. Quite a moving and compassionate image.
