The Ten Virtuous Karmas are divided into three major catego­ries: physical, verbal, and mental.

 

Physically, we are prohibited from killing, stealing, and engaging in sexual misconduct.

 

Verbally, we are prohibited from using false speech, harsh speech, divisive speech, or enticing speech.

 

Mentally, we are prohibited from giving rise to thoughts of greed, anger, and ignorance.
