RESTRICTING PURPOSELESS VIOLENCE

 

 

Eighth Vow - Third (Supporting) Guna Vrat
 

The third supporting vow is to refrain from purposeless and meaningless violence. When will that auspicious day come in my life, when I can take the vow not to get involved in any of the meaningless violent activities? These activities are concentration on evil, cruel, or mournful thoughts, reluctance towards righteous or good deeds, possession of deadly weapons, and preaching of sinful acts, and one should not indulge in them in any of the three ways of doing personally, asking some one else to do, or encouraging others to do so, mentally, verbally, or physically. I shall try to observe these principles in my life, to the best of my abilities.

There are following five major violations pertaining to this vow of restrictions on purposeless violence:

1.      Uttering words that would arouse passion,

2.      Performing bad gestures,

3.      Carelessly speaking meaningless jargons,

4.      Collecting deadly weapons, or

5.      Excessive attachment towards consumer items.

 

If I have indulged in any of the above acts, then may all my such sins be dissolved. TASSA MICHCHHAMI DUKKADAM.
