Being Integrity

The material in Being Integrity builds on our earlier work. In this series there is a minimum of review; we assume that you are familiar with the earlier materials. If you do not know the technical definitions and concepts presented earlier, you will get confused and as a result, be unable to apply this material. You should study this material using the study methods given in our video series Becoming Genius. If you haven’t reviewed the Becoming Genius series yet, stop here and review them before going on.

Integrity is so important that the Buddha claimed that no one can attain enlightenment without it. But as we have seen from history, artificially imposed external virtue such as religious ethics, state legality and social morality doesn’t really alter people’s behavior. What is needed is to become a person of integrity (sappurisā), such that one’s very being is integrity, and thus integrity becomes one’s natural, spontaneous self-expression.
