The second, shila paramita, is perfection of the five mindfulness trainings. The first of the five is protection of the lives of humans, animals and nature; the second is to prevent exploitation by humans of nature and others, and generosity; the third is to protect children and adults from sexual abuse and preserve happiness; the fourth is deep listening and loving speech, and the fifth is mindful consumption.
