【The Varieties of Karma】- A virtuous attitude arises from a virtuous action.
So what are virtuous actions? The aforementioned nonvirtuous actions, such as killing, stealing, sexual misconducts, the three physical actions, the four vocal actions and so on, for all that we have done in the past which we now know all the harms and faults of them, and thus with this principle, you gain correct understanding. As you do not understand them previously, you have been pursuing them wholeheartedly. Now that you have understood the error, you wholeheartedly reject them, reject them. So, when you yearn for them, this type of yearning is "greedy desire." When you reject them in accordance to the Teachings, this type of yearning is "yearning for virtues (Dharma)". It is with this that you have a correct understanding. "A virtuous attitude" refers to the virtuous mind that arises from this, and this is described as surpassingly supreme and auspicious.
