The Very First Lesson: No Killing!

The Blessed Buddha often nailed down the crucial necessity of Harmlessness:
One should never ever kill any living being whatsoever,
nor ever cause it to be killed, harmed, or injured,
nor should anyone ever incite any others to kill!
Do never injure any being, whether strong
or weak, in this entire cosmic universe!
Sutta Nipāta 2.396

Back-2-Basics #1 = Never Kill!
