- First mindfulness training: Aware of the suffering caused by the destruction of life, I am committed to cultivate compassion and learn ways to protect the lives of people, animals, plants, and minerals. I am determined not to kill, not to let others kill, and not to condone any act of killing in the world, in my thinking and my way of life.
- Oversensitivity toward criticism made of you is to be avoided at all costs - if violated, do not feel disturbed.
