Whatever set of sīla is undertaken later will wholly abrogate and supersede any set of sīla that was undertaken earlier and without any need for the older set to be formally renounced For example, if a five-precept-keeper takes the eight precepts, then the third-precept obligation to avoid sex with...

Unless , you are already EQU...
