Sixth Vow - First (Supporting) Guna Vrat
 

The first supporting vow is to restrict dealings within limited directions. When will that auspicious day come in my life, when I can take the vow and set limits on dealing in different directions? They are upward, downward, East, West, North and South, and I will stay within that. I shall try to observe these limitations to the best of my abilities, and try not to cross them willingly and get involved in the five evils of violence, lies, theft, passion, and greed. I would not do it myself, or ask someone else to do it for me, or encourage them to do so mentally, verbally, or physically.

There are following five major violations pertaining to this vow of geographic limitations:

1.      Crossing the limits of upward direction,

2.      Crossing the limits of downward direction,

3.      Crossing the limits of Eastern, Western, Northern, or

Southern directions,

4.      Curtailing the limit of one direction to extend the limits of an another, or

5.      Proceeding in spite of indication that the limit is over.

 

If I have indulged in any of the above acts, then may all my such sins be dissolved. TASSA MICHCHHAMI DUKKADAM.
