Hello

It's great that the 3 Gems are being chanted...but have they forgotten how Buddha went everywhere talking about the 5 Sila and the 4 Brahma Viharas?
The precepts and Brahma Viharas are very, very important. They lay out a basic moral fabric without which a society cannot exist.
This is called Dharma Stapana, establishment of law and order-- or giving the law!
It is the declaration of the Law!
