    The five Human Values                           RIGHT CONDUCT - DHARMA

rightconduct

ESOTERIC MEANING
Right Conduct guides the whole universe – from atom to galaxy – in an exquisite dance of power and perfection. Every single thing is subject to rules which define ‘correct action’ in the context of its special place in the universe: its unique duty, nature and function. To align ourselves with the current of Right Conduct, we need to ask of each action whether it will lead us closer to, or away from, Love, Peace, Truth and Non-violence

PRACTICAL MEANING
Those seeking to practise Right Conduct will show respect for society’s laws, their parents and elders – and the customs and practices of other cultures and faiths.

They will aim to be healthy, hygienic, tidy, punctual, dutiful, reliable and responsible; to live simply; to study and work diligently; to respect elders; and to take on duties and responsibilities willingly. They will develop self-reliance, self-discipline – and enthusiasm.

Underlying all this is a commitment to be true to the inner guidance of conscience, which prompts all of Nature to be uniquely and perfectly Itself.

WISE SAYINGS
We should try our very best in everything we do
Real strength is that which comes from doing the right thing
Keep the company of good people
Do unto others as you would have them do unto you
We must train our mind to think more and more good thoughts
