Book: The Five Principles of Middle Way Philosophy
Chapter: a. The Middle Way as a Framework of Practices
The practices discussed in this section of the book all contribute to an effective long-term response to absolutization. All need to be shaped by the five principles. The Middle Way as a whole provides an account of why these practices are beneficial and how they inter-relate. It can also become a ready basis for archetypal symbolism to inspire our practice. The Threefold Practice is a taxonomy for Middle Way practices based on the levels of integration (desire meaning and belief) in connection with whether they operate at individual or socio-political level.
