The Sixth Gate
Pure conduct of the actions of the mouth is a gate of Dharma illumination; for it eliminates the four evils.*
*1) lying, 2) suppression of speech, 3) abusive speech, 4) duplicitous speech
the manner in which a person behaves, esp. on a particular occasion or in a particular context.
May we, together with all beings
Realize the skill of comtrolling actions;
That the four evils may be removed.
May this offering bring peace to all beings
May our actions contribute to the harmony of The Universe
And, may all hearts and minds be opened to The Present
