Indispensable

Image result for precious vaseJust as those without eyes are unable to see forms, so too the Dharma is not seen without ethical discipline.

Just as it is impossible to embark on a road without legs, so too Liberation will not come without ethical discipline.

Just as a good vase is a vessel for precious things, so too ethical discipline is the basis for cultivating the Dharmas.

Just as a broken vase is not suitable to be a vessel for precious things, so too all Dharmas fall away when ethical discipline is torn asunder.

—Buddha Shakyamuni, Śīlā Samyukta Sūtra
