Attasila (8 Precepts)

Observance of 8 Precepts (Atthasila)

 

Generally if you practice in the Thevaradian (Thailand, Sri Lanka), most of the temples generally observe 8 precepts as follows:

1. I undertake the precept to abstain from destroying living creatures (intentional killing)

2. I undertake the precept to abstain from taking what is not given (ie stealing)

3. I undertake the precept to abstain from unchaste conduct

4. I undertake the precept to abstain from false speech

5. I undertake the precept to abstain from distilled and fermented intoxicants which are the occassion for restlessless (ie no alcohol or drugs)

6. I undertake the precept to abstain from eating at the wrong time (ie no solid meal after 12pm)

7. I undertake the precept to abstain from dancing, singing, music, unseemingly shows, wearing garlands, apply perfumes and cosmetics.

8. I undertake the precept to abstain from lying on a high or large bed (well, you can still sleep on a small single bed if your back cannot take lying flat on the mat).

需要遵守八戒 (Atthasila)

若您修Thevaradian式佛法(泰国及斯里兰卡),大部份庙宇都遵守八关斋戒,又名八戒斋,如下:

一、不杀生戒— 不故意杀生

二、不偷盗戒

三、不淫戒—即完全禁止淫欲

四、不妄语戒—即不说谎话

五、不饮酒戒—即禁止饮酒。因酒醉时,神志昏昧,会做出糊涂事

六、不非时食戒—不是吃饭的时间,不可吃饭,即过午不食固体食物。

七、不化妆、不涂香水,不穿华丽服装,不观看歌舞及不到娱乐场所

七、不睡卧高大床褥—若睡在地板上您会背痛的话,则可睡在简单的床上。
