Shameful Conduct [9e déc. 2007|08:11 pm]
There are six kind of shameful conduct that you are advised to abandon :
To hoard wealth and possessions is shameful.
To put too much stock in elegant clothing and other accoutrements is shameful.
To beautify yourself with ornaments and other finery is shameful.
To practice while distracted by material concerns is shameful.
To be involved in numerous activites that are not in keeping with the dharma is shameful.
To be full of self-importance, pride, or arrogance is shameful.
From my heart, I ask those who engage in spiritual practice to avoid such conduct.
