51 - Repentance in Buddhism

Do Buddhists "repent"? Yes! And it's not what you think. Repentance in Buddhism is a fundamental part of Buddhist practice because it helps us "get out" the misdeed/transgression of the five precepts we created so that we can understand why, ask for help, and set an aspiration of action and cultivation of good deeds. This is important because morality/conduct is part of the Buddha's teachings and essential for enlightenment. As human beings, we sometimes go "off the path" in Buddhism and as we repent, we make ourselves aware of that so we can prevent it in the future. It's a wholesome practice that is firmly rooted in Buddhism. Contact Alan: Podcast Homepage: Podcast Disclaimer: --- Send in a voice message:

Welcome to the Learn Buddhism with Alan Peto Podcast

If you are interested in Buddhism and live in a Western country, but confused by all the confusing words and concepts, this podcast is for you.  I have been explaining Buddhism for years in my articles, videos, and infographics, and now taking to podcasts.  What sets this apart is that I am not a Buddhist monastic or having some fancy title in front of my name.  Instead, I am a Buddhist layperson - just like you.  This allows me to help explain Buddhism in a way that "makes sense" and is relatable, while still holding true to the Buddhist teachings.  This intro episode will tell you what to expect in the next few episodes, and what is coming up later.  I want to hear from you:  tell me what you are wanting to learn about Buddhism, what you are confused about, and what you want to get out of this podcast!  Also, check out my articles and videos on my website and subscribe to me on your favorite social media platform:  To learn more about me, visit: --- Send in a voice message:
