The second paramita is tshul-khrims, “ethics, morality, moral discipline, ethical conduct, rule, order,” shila in Sanskrit. According to the Bodhisattva Vehicle, there are three categories of ethics (tshul-khrims-gsum): (1) to refrain from negative actions, (2) to accumulate what is positive, and (3) to help others.
