Breaking the Five Precepts

In the Christian religion, we have the Ten Commandments. Well, in Buddhism, they have much the same. For lay people they have to keep five precepts. Novice monks keep ten precepts. Adult monks have to keep 227 precepts! I will talk about some of those later. For the time being, I want to show you these pictures I took at Wang Saen Suk last weekend. These are the things that will happen to you if you break each of the five precepts. You have been warned!

(One): You must not kill (Two): You must not steal

(Three): You must not commit adultery (Four): You must not tell a lie

(Five): You must not take strong drinks

The final picture shows what will happen to you if you don’t give alms to the monks and keep the five precepts.
