Sīla and adhiṭṭhāna a little help?

Post by Wizard in the Forest »

I'm writing up a set of precepts that are made for me and with some reminders to help get me on the right track mentally but I actually want to try and write them in Pāli but this is a very rough draft and I'm not sure if I've gotten everything that I want fleshed out, so I'm open to suggestions for revision and editing because I have absolutely forgotten some precepts that would be good for me and without a doubt I have butchered BUTCHERED it so any helpful hints for me to work on to do it right and also some ideas on how to correct my Pāli would be appreciated.

Here's the Abomination so far. Also as a note I'm a woman so if the gender is wrong please help me put it on the right gender if you can

I am aware it is impossible in this life to become a Sammāsambuddha but I'm not thinking in a one life stanza so if you could ensure it has a guide to the male and female method of recitation it would be incredibly helpful.

Uh I'm Practicing Celibacy.

Hence abrahmacariya, as opposed to kamesu micchācara

Is it ok grammatically, though? because I'm sure I made mistakes all around it.

I'm writing it myself as a practice so that I may chant it myself when I need to recall my determinations and precept commitments.

Would be silly if I was chanting wrong the whole time!

You might want to PM it to Volo or Ven. Dhammanando if they don't see it here...

I will try doing that, thank you very much for your help.

I'm working on attempting to write what I can in Pāli and to use it to strengthen my practice.

I'm impressed! My pathetic level of Pali can't help with the detail, but it looks mighty fine to me! :anjali:
