Propelled by own karmic retributions, violation of shi e wu ni, ten evils
and five rebellious acts, is bound for downfall into the hells. How best to
leave misfortune for fortune? Practice of virtue in termination of evil,
needless to say, slams the gate to the hells.
Ten virtues are no killing, no stealing, no sexual misconduct, no
double tongue, no coarse language, no improper remarks, no lying,
no greed, no anger, and no ignorance. Cultivation of the ten virtues is
unimpeded with the three karma of body, mouth, and thought always
on the alert and always kept from straying. Further, regular excursions
along the path of giving and affinity, too, help refrain from downfall
into the hells.
