FIVE FOLD MORAL CULTURE
Each person must live by the earnings made
through his or her own mental or physical labor.
Our method of living should not cause any
suffering to the body or mind of any person.
One should not kill any living being for food.

possessions and freedom of others and help to protect them.

Each person must live by the earnings
made through his or her own mental or physical labor.
There should simply not be any question
of taking another personís possessions. Everyone has his needs. If
he cannot fulfill these by this own earning, it becomes necessary
for them to make use of someone elseís hard-earned possessions. If
this is allowed, eventually human life will start resembling animal
Animals do not have the capacity to
produce the food stuff that they need to satisfy hunger. Most of
them therefore depend for their food on killing and eating other
animals. If mankind does not follow the noble moral culture of
living on oneís own earnings, our lifestyle will become cruel like
that of animals. Just imagine, whenever a carnivorous animal
becomes hungry it is obliged to do four deeds, namely
Torturing another living being
Violently claiming its body as food and
Destroying its freedom to live.
Since these crimes
cause pain and suffering to living beings, they are called
sinful deeds when committed by a human beings.
Every thought and action by a living
being gets shrunk and compressed by the Almighty self-compressive
surrounding pressure, and stored in the form of waves in its Genetic
Center. When circumstances are appropriate,
these concentrated waves blossom again into actions and thoughts.
This sets the pattern for the four evils mentioned above to form the
way of living for animals. These four patterns of action have
become the character of the Genetic Centre of every carnivorous
member of the animal kingdom. As mankind has evolved from ancestors,
these crimes also characterize the human Genetic Centre, which
determines the way we lead our lives. This is why the aforesaid four
sinful tendencies have become natural to mankind and are continuing
through heredity. If you look at the criminal codes and laws all
over the world, you will that the actions identified as crimes
through history can all be described as one of these four types. To
avoid committing these four offences and change his characterized
four actions and thoughts, man must work hard, using his body and
mind, to make his way of life divine.
Our method of living should not cause
any suffering to the body or mind of any person.
The divine law is such that Nature is
never the cause of suffering; only man creates all pains and
miseries. Only the injustices perpetrated by mankind are responsible
for all the suffering now prevailing in the world. Therefore, if
every person decides to abide by this principle of not causing pain
to anyone else, would society not live in peace.
One should not kill any living being
We have considered this point and its
effects already under the First Principle of
this Code, above. It is enough if recall what has been said.
One must have the utmost respect for
the possessions and freedom of others and help to
We do not need a great deal of
explanation for this statement. This code of conduct is absolutely
to remove from the human society the growing tendency of exploiting
others in various ways.
One must cultivate loving kindness and
strive to alleviate the miseries of others to the extent possible.
Society as a whole is able to function
only with the labor of all and cooperation and help from everyone.
This is essential. This noble way of living will bring happiness to
To sum up, I suggest that all adults
and thinkers should endeavor realize the benefits of this Five-fold
moral culture and begin to sincerely follow it in life. It will be
a good idea for all to take a vow that they will follow this
five-fold code of conduct in life. Let the intellectuals assume the
duty of spreading the merits of the code among the general public.
Let its implementation be considered a
sacred human obligation.
