Nobody’s perfect, and it’s never more obvious to us than when we take a vow and find ourselves falling short. Throughout this series, Soto Zen teacher Susan Moon will look at our vows to practice the Buddhist precepts and teach us to view ourselves with compassion and humor when we make mistakes. Practice is not meant to be perfect, but we can acknowledge our inevitable shortcomings, renew our intentions, and learn to use our imperfections to illuminate the path of practice.
