Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

All Adultery, Incest, and Paedophilia is Sexual Abuse!


Once in Savatthi the Blessed Buddha said this:
What, householder friends, is the Dhamma explanation befitting for oneself?
Here, householder friends, a Noble Disciple reflects thus: If someone were to
commit adultery with my wife, that would neither be pleasing, nor agreeable to me.
Similarly, if I were to commit adultery with another man's wife, that would also be
illicit sex, and horny fornication, which would neither be pleasing, nor agreeable to
that other man either....  What is displeasing and disagreeable to me, is also displeasing
and disagreeable to any other being too. How can I harm and hurt another being with
what provoke, annoy and exasperate myself? Having reflected repeatedly in this way,
then gradually:
1: He/she will carefully avoid all adultery, sexual, and sensual abuse...
2: He/she will persuade others also to abstain from all adultery, and sexual abuse...
3: He/she will speak praising behaving faithfully, loyal, in trustworthy fidelity...
In this very way is this advantageous bodily behaviour purified in all it's 3 respects!

One should never mentally hurt or harm other beings, even when Greedy for Sex!
