Blurb: Aside from the obvious truths of virtue (sīla), mental concentration (samādhi) and wisdom (pañña), the five principles of moral conduct were laid down by the Buddha, for another reason. The author reasons that they serve as a prophylactic against unwholesome karma and the misery resulting from it.
