Buddhist Dictionary

by late Ven. Nyanalokita Thera:

cāritta-sīla and vāritta-sīla:1) 'morality consisting in performance and morality consisting in avoidance,' means “the performance of those moral rules which the Blessed one has ordained to be followed, and the avoidance of those things that the Blessed One has rejected as not to be followed” (Visuddhi Magga III).
