The Five Noble A’s
The five noble A’s that are the driving force in my life:
- Anukampā – non-hatred; compassion and kindness.
- Ahiṃsā – non-cruelty and non-injury; not hurting any being in words, actions or thoughts.
- Ārjava – non-hypocrisy; honesty and straight-forwardness.
- Aparigraha – non-possession and non-greediness; detachment and service to others.
- Astēya – non-stealing; respect for private and public property.
I’ll expand more on these as time goes by.
