In fact, keeping precepts and maintaining the senses are two, but they are not separate, closely related to each other. Protecting apartments is also a form of keeping precepts, but is more flexible and has no precepts.

“Once, the Buddha was staying in the country of Sāvat, in the forest of Thang Lam, in the garden of Solitude. At that time, the venerable Sāriputta said to the bhikkhus:

– Monks, a bhikkhu who violates the precepts damages the protection of the senses. If you keep the precepts, you will have no regrets, joy, happiness, peace, happiness, concentration, knowledge of the truth, detachment, celibacy, and liberation. If you don’t get liberated, you harm Nirvana.

“Friends, just like a tree whose roots are damaged, its trunk, core, branches, branches, flowers, and leaves will not succeed. The sages should know, bhikkhus are the same way. If anyone breaks the precepts, it harms the protection of the senses, the protection of the precepts, no regrets, joy, joy, peace, happiness, concentration, knowledge as it is, detachment, celibacy, and liberation. If you don’t get liberated, you harm Nirvana.

“Bhikkhus, a bhikkhu who protects the precepts is usually free from regret, joy, joy, peace, happiness, concentration, knowledge of as it is, disenchantment, celibacy, and liberation. If you are liberated, then you will attain Nirvana.

– Like a tree, friends, if the roots are not damaged, the trunk, core, branches, branches, flowers, and leaves will all be accomplished. The Hien should know, Bhikkhu-stilts too. If someone keeps the precepts, he or she will usually be free of regrets, joy, joy, peace, happiness, concentration, knowledge of the truth, disenchantment, celibacy, and liberation. If you are liberated, then you will attain Nirvana.

Such is the venerable Sāriputta. The bhikkhus, after listening to Venerable Sāriputta, joyfully served them.”

(The A-Ham Sutra, The Book of Samadhi, the Precepts [II]number 48)

When practicing keeping the precepts, it will strengthen the protection of the apartments.

Something about Buddhist precepts

In this chapter of the Compendium, the basic path towards the attainment of Arahantship is still the same as “Keeping the precepts, without regrets, with joy, with joy, with serenity, with pleasure, with concentration, with knowledge as it really is, forsaken, celibate, liberated, attaining Nirvana.” In the previous Dharma talk (Nation Sutra, No. 44), the World-Honored One mentioned the role of protecting the senses, helping practitioners to achieve precepts. In this Dharma talk, the Blessed One emphasized the reciprocal role between keeping the precepts and protecting the senses, “breaking the precepts inevitably compromises the protection of the senses.”

In fact, keeping precepts and maintaining the senses are two, but they are not separate, closely related to each other. Protecting apartments is also a form of keeping precepts, but is more flexible and has no precepts. Failing to protect the premises is to let loose, to run after the karma that arises depending on the conditions. If the defensive barrier of the outer buildings collapses, the next barrier to keep the precepts is shaken, the risk of breaking the precepts may occur. On the contrary, once breaking the precepts, it is easy to keep up with the protection of the senses, the ability to protect the outside is even weaker. Since then the holy life is damaged and it is difficult for the practitioner to go far on the path.

Therefore, when practicing keeping the precepts, it will strengthen the protection of the apartments. Protecting solid apartments will help to make the precepts more fulfilling. The foundation for the defense of the main senses is mindfulness and awareness. In which, mindfulness belongs to the section of Concentration, and awareness belongs to the section of Wisdom. So, when keeping the precepts carefully, protecting the entire apartments, right there are the qualities of Precepts – Concentration – Wisdom. Having acquired the qualities of Virtue – Concentration – Wisdom, then the meditator has hope to progress to the attainment of liberation, Nirvana.
