Introduction | 介绍:

The Eight Precepts is the code of ethics laid down by Buddha to aid lay Buddhists in their spiritual practice where they get to experience short-term monastic life. Other than being auspicious to observe the Eight Precepts, it also helps one to eradicate negative karma.

1. Abstinence from taking life;
2. Abstinence from taking what is not given;
3. Abstinence from chastity;
4. Abstinence from false speech;
5. Abstinence from intoxicating which cause a careless frame of mind;
6. Abstinence from taking food at the wrong time;
7. Abstinence from dancing, music, visiting shows, flowers, make-up, the wearing of ornaments and decorations;
8. Abstinence from a tall, high sleeping place;
