224Breaking a lay precept
- Mar 2, 2003Dear Venerables,
I wonder what a lay person can do if he breaks one of the precepts, for example the third precept. If he has
not 'formally' taken the five precepts but has studied Buddhism for some years, he understands that there are
effects of kamma, but he just could not control himself and therefore committed the action. What should he
do? Does he need to confess in person to a monk?
What are your advices to people who have committed actions that are against the five lay precepts?
With best regards
