Buddhism has been very attached to codes and rules. Morality or ethics are preliminaries to the higher goals of Buddhism and the essential basis of the higher life. Buddhism adapted its ethical ideals to new cultural situations not so much by reasoning the subtleties of a moral theology but by an appeal to extra-ethical values: (1) by affirmingits transcendeand (2)by appealing its more general soteriological principles. Traditional Buddhist rhetoric is responding adequately to the crisis in Buddhist ethics today. A meaningful reexamination of the Vinayas will require a revision of both the content and the foundations of Buddhist ethical ideals. It will not do to deny the shortcomings of Buddhism. A meaningful Buddhist ethics for our times should have four overlapping requirements:①To be rooted in the past and in traditional Buddhist discourse. ②To take the social and the individual present into account. ③To serve its purpose well with a minimum of mystification and pomp in Buddhist ethical discourse. ④To take into account the individual as well as his or her social reality. It must be a code for each and every one. We need to examine critically some of the ancient mystifications and to renew the myths and symbols that sustain Buddhist ethical life. However, it does not mean the end of religious owe.
