one abstains from the taking of life.

One dwells with the rod laid down,

the knife laid down, scrupulous, merciful,

trembling with compassion for the welfare of all living beings.

—Buddha Shakyamuni

 One must not directly kill a sentient being; encourage others to kill; kill by expedient means; praise killing; rejoice at killing; curse to die; nor create the causes, conditions, methods, or karma of killing.


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.
