| (105) Akusala
which is not deserving of reliance and which
should be avoided
Akusala, in brief, means the ten kinds of duccaritas. These are:
These are the three immoral physical actions or conduct - 'kayakammam'.
The above are the four verbal acts of misconduct called 'vacikamma'.
These three enumerated above, are caused by the mind - 'manokamma'.
As mentioned in the foregoing, there are ten duccaritas - evil or sinful immoral actions on which no reliance should be made. Moreover, these should also be avoided. More details relating to these ten duccaritas may be referred to in the Sallekha Sutta Dhamma, if desired. Putting it in a nutshell, all actions relating to thought, word or speech, and deeds (physical) which cause misery and sufferings to others are akusala that should be kept away as being unreliable.
