I do this for each of the precepts and some other ethical guidelines here
Surāmeraya – rum & spirits.
Surā - intoxicating liquor.
meraya - fermented liquor.
Majjapa - one drinks, strong drinks.
Majja - an intoxicant.
Pamāda - negligence; indolence; remissness; carelessness.
Māda - pride; intoxication; conceit; sexual excess.
ṭhānā - place; locality; condition; reason; office; cause;
Curious! What do you think of the idea that this precept only applies to alcohol drinks? Some people insist that it only applies to alcoholic drink and not to other substances, like psychedelic drugs, because they claim the pali words technically only mentions liquors, drinks, etc.?
