PRECEPTS AND BLESSINGS
Question: Is there a correlation between a person’s blessings and how well he observes the precepts?
Answer: There is definitely a correlation between a person’s blessings and how well he observes the precepts. The better a person observes the precepts, the more blessings he will receive. Don’t you think a person will have blessings if he observes precepts such as refraining from gossiping, flattery, harming others, stealing, and drinking alcohol? Will he not be greatly blessed if he can refrain from being greedy, angry and ignorant? On the other hand, if a person is greedy and has endless desires, will he have blessings? Surely not. The sight of him simply annoys people.< Words of Wisdom
