samsara
Dogen

The five basic moral guidelines for all Buddhists, including lay people and monastics: abstaining from killing, stealing, sexual misconduct, lying, and using (for lay people, sometimes more loosely interpreted as “abusing”) intoxicants. The Five Precepts are recommended but optional for lay people, but required for monastics, who are also required to abide by additional precepts and regulations.
