Five Precepts

One who upholds the Five Precepts

always is greater

than even the most wealthy and powerful of people

who breaks them.

The fragrance of flowers and sweet wood

cannot be sensed from afar, and yet

the sweet fragrance of morality can be sensed

throughout the ten directions.

One who upholds the Five precepts

always is joyful and contented

and his good name will be heard from afar;

heavenly beings will love him and respect him

and his life in this world will be

filled with sweet bliss.
