  • Not to become angry
  • Not to lie
  • To equally distribute wealth
  • To forgive
  • To beget children only by one's legitimate wife
  • To be pure in mind and hygienic in body

desires one should not make plans.
3. By spiritual culture one is able to conquer sleep.

6. By self-control one can be free from false
hopes. 7. Money can be saved by avoiding
undesirable association. 8. By practice of
yoga one can control hunger. 9. Worldliness
can be avoided by culturing the knowledge of
impermanence. 10. Dizziness can be conquered
by rising up. 11. False arguments can be
conquered by factual ascertainment. 12.
Talkativeness can be avoided by gravity and silence.
13. By prowess one can avoid fearfulness.
14. Perfect knowledge can be obtained by self-cultivation.
