Title

Not killing

img11
Kural NumberKural
img11
321What is virtuous conduct? It is never destroying life,
For killing leads to every other sin.
img11
322Of all the virtues summed by ancient sages the foremost are these:
To partake of food one has shared and to protect all living creatures.
img11
323Not killing is the first and foremost good.
The virtue of not lying comes next.
img11
324What is the good way? It is the path that reflects on
How it may avoid killing any living creature.
img11
325Among all who disown the world out of dismay, the foremost are
They who, dismayed with death-dealing, embrace non-killing.
img11
326Life-devouring death will not assail the living days
Of one whose code of conduct is to never kill.
img11
327Refrain from taking precious life from any living being,
Even to save your own life.
img11
328By sacrifice of life some gain great wealth and good,
But sagacious men scorn such gains.
img11
329Those whose trade is killing creatures are deemed defiled
By men who know the defiling nature of being mean.
img11
330They say the beggar who suffers a sore ridden body and deprived life
Once deprived another's body of life
