THE FIVE ETHICAL GUIDELINES

 

 

  1. I undertake not to engage in killing or violence.

 

  1. I undertake not to engage in stealing or cheating.

 

  1. I undertake not to engage in sexual abuse.

 

  1. I undertake not to engage in lying and harmful speech.

 

  1. I undertake not to engage in alcohol or drug abuse.

 

We express disrespect for these guidelines when we:

condone war, executions and destruction of human life

go for what we want, regardless of personal, social or environmental cost

manipulate another for sex

speak without regard for facts or feelings

distort the balance of our mind through intoxicants
