What are the five precepts - Five precepts of buddhism


Before performing penance, one should protect the three doors of mind, body, and speech and respect the three jewels of Buddha, Dhamma, and Sangha. 


There is an order of penance. It is important for all Buddhists and non-Buddhists to know.


It is possible for oneself to perform penance. If not, he can invite the bhikkhu to establish himself in the Panchasheela. 


We should first place both hands on the forehead three times,


Sadu! Sadu! Sadu!! 


Along with that, the worship text should be recited three times.

Namo tassa bhagavato arahato samma sambuddhassa


Namo tassa bhagavato arahato samma sambuddhassa


meaning


May my worship be to that blessed arahath Lord Buddha!


After worshiping, one should stay in refuge. This is also known as the refuge of the three, the position of Tisarana. Buddha, Dhamma, Sangha are these three. There is an order in taking refuge in the Trinity. It is as follows.

Five precepts 


After taking refuge in the Holy Trinity, one should perform penance. By taking shelter of the three, one can enter Buddhahood. But one becomes a Buddhist by following Buddhist principles. Without fulfilling these principles, it is not possible to reach nirvana, which is the goal of Buddhism, only by believing in the three gods. Therefore, secondly, one should promise to avoid five mistakes. It is called penance.



Celebrating penance is a principle. In order to be in penance, one must be in that principle and act to free others from those mistakes. For example, if someone doesn't drink alcohol, he acts to get rid of it. Thus, if someone avoids five sins and works to prevent others from doing so, he will be situated in Panchasheela.
