Abstract

This paper considers the ethics of Buddhism from a psychological perspective. Buddhism has a strong ethical stance, and this pervades the Buddhist attitude to interactions with other beings. The underlying universal ethics that one finds in Buddhism has implications for psycho-somatic well-being. The paper considers the ethics of Buddhism and how it relates to psycho-somatic health. Modern work on psycho-somatic medicine is briefly considered in this discussion. Recent concepts and work on the developmental aspects of ethics/morality are also discussed.
