the seventh precept

Post by Sovatthika » Mon Nov 13, 2017 7:02 am

would anyone mind either here offering a step by step translation of the seventh sutta, especially regarding the component of entertainment
or pointing me to a thread where it is adequately done
i would talk about concerns i have but i want to keep this factual and on point

7. Nacca-gita-vadita-visukkadassana mala-gandha-vilepana-dharana-mandana-vibhusanathana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from dancing, singing, music, going to see entertainments, wearing garlands, using perfumes, and beautifying the body with cosmetics.
