Description

Sex and lust is the topic of this episode. First, you have to understand that the ideal in Buddhism regarding sex is complete abstinence. That’s why Buddhist monks are forbidden from sexual relations of any kind. But lay Buddhist are permitted to have sex with a partner they are committed to. The only restriction is laid out in the third precept of the Five Precepts of Buddhism. The precept says, "I undertake the precept to refrain from sexual misconduct." In the next few minute I want to discuss refraining from sexual misconduct.
