King Flower shares the 1st Prescribed Practice.
Apriori understands that the kingdom is based on the respect of life. This is the first prescribed practice. The 1st of the Five Precepts is to undertake the practice of not killing. Not killing is not just not killing it is also not harming.
This is not just an idea of Buddhists. The Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths all recognize as one of the Ten Commandments that one should not kill. Not killing also means not harming. If you are wanting to harm some life or you realize that you are doing this then you can change and do no more harm.
Food of course is killing. At the same time all of us are food in some form or another. We must respect life in this way also. What do we really need to eat in order to be happy and healthy?
