10th Bodhisattva Vow

As a disciple of the Buddha, I shall not disparage the Triple Jewel or encourage others to do so. I must not create the causes, conditions, methods, or karma of slander.

If I hear but a single word of slander against the Buddha, the Dharma, or the Sangha from externalists or evil beings, I experience a pain similar to that of three hundred spears piercing my heart. How then could I possibly disparage the Triple Jewel myself? If I lack faith and filial piety towards the Triple Jewel, and assist evil persons or those of aberrant views to slander the Triple Jewel, I commit a major offense.

—Brahma Net Sutra, Bodhisattva Vows

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
