One justifies his or her conduct according to the principles chosen to cope with oneself and the world around. Thus, the behavior of a person is an expression of his or her interpretation of life. According to the law of causation, all living beings have a karmic substance as the product of their conduct. In a spiritual context, proper conduct is also referred to as virtue; in the Pāli language, it is called Silā. A virtuous person acts consciously in any given situation in life. In so doing, one abstains from unethical behavior, whether spiritual, verbal, mental, or physical. It eases the distortions of perception and strengthens the mind. Thus, proper conduct provides the possibility of harmony and perfection in one’s life. It is essential to observe Silā as diligently as possible, especially during meditation.
