sila "morals", "ethics": precepts.

Śīla (Sanskrit) or Sīla (Pāli), Tibetan tshul.khrims, is a term in the Indian religions Hinduism and Buddhism which is sometimes rendered into English as "behavioral discipline," "morality," or "ethics" . More specifically, the concept deals with the prohibitions against immoral behavior that are practiced by ordained laypeople, monks and nuns in Buddhism. It is one of the "three practices", the second pāramitā: moral purity, of thought, word, and deed. The four conditions of śīla are chaste, calm, quiet, extinguishment, i.e. no longer being susceptible to be perturbed by the passions.
