DN31.2. Four Corrupt Deeds

Sigalovada Sutta("Advice to Sigālaka")

What four corrupt deeds have they given up? Killing living creatures, stealing, sexual misconduct, and lying: these are corrupt deeds. These are the four corrupt deeds they’ve given up.”

That is what the Buddha said. Then the Holy One, the Teacher, went on to say:

“Killing, stealing,
telling lies,
and committing adultery:
astute people don’t praise these things.”
