Ethics and Emptiness Conference

Today is the last day of a small conference going on at Central Michigan University on Buddhist Ethics and Emptiness. I met many of these guys at last year’s Columbia Conference on Buddhist Ethics (you can still download/listen to podcasts), and look forward to today’s discussion.
