The Buddhist concept of condition pertains to chance, to bondage, in
which things are intertwined from initiation all the way to connection
and, finally, to separation. In the process, all of us are bound to find
ourselves in relationships. It is crucial thing to treat relationships as
positive karma and eliminate the negative.
A happy marriage is a thing of beauty, but the happenstance for an
affair, its destroyer. Think this way: good condition put on top of good
cause would never come down to evil fruit. Adhere to good condition
all yours, then, never leave or abandon it, and attain good fruit. Transfer
thought and admiration from the would-be lover to the Buddhas and
bodhisattvas. Love selflessly. Be as kind to yourself as you are to
another. Exit from any relationship uncalled-for.
Among the five precepts for Buddhist practitioners is the precept
against sexual misconduct, connoting that a married couple should
stay faithful to each other—the root of a family immunized from angst.
