one abstains from taking what is not given.

One does not take, in the manner of a thief,

things in a village or a wilderness that belong to others

and have not been given by them.

—Buddha Shakyamuni

We must never appropriate something secretly, violently, or by threatening violence; by deception or false arguments; or by claiming private ownership of what is public property.

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.
