Consequences of Virtuous Acts

taranathaTangkaProtecting life leads to longevity; generosity leads to sufficient wealth; propriety in sexual conduct leads to freedom from enemies; truthfulness leads to praise; reconciling others leads to having many friends; speaking gently leads to hearing pleasant words; speaking meaningfully leads to noble speech; contentment leads to accomplishing one’s aims; compassion leads to a happy mind; and right view leads to expanding intelligence.
