the guidelines

A student asked Suzuki Roshi if he kept an eye on his students to see if they were following the precepts, the Buddhist guidelines of conduct.

“I don’t pay attention to whether you’re following the precepts or not,” he answered. “I just notice how you are with one another.”

~ Suzuki Roshi quoted in To Shine One Corner Of The World
