In keeping with his notion of indicative ethics, Lehmann sees the commandments as descriptive rather than prescriptive. [xi] The commands do not tell us what to do in every situation. Buddhism offers a close analysis of mind, investigating the emotions, dispositions, and tendencies that drive our action and shape the world.
