The Buddha in teaching and transforming all living beings was
particularly emphatic about personal endeavors to control over own
destiny and environment and to abstain from delusions and follies. He
stipulated the precepts and discipline to correctly outline activities and
to leave behind a code of ethics for abidance. The occasional visit to the
fortune-teller, feng-shui consultant, or palm-reader is not altogether
blameworthy, but neither is there reason for indulgence.
