6th direction: As a Buddhist, one should show reverence to the monks, who are likened to the “upper direction,” as follows:

1. One acts towards them with goodwill.

2. One speaks to them with goodwill.

3. One thinks of them with goodwill.

4. One receives them willingly.

5. One supports them with the four requisites [almsfood, robes, shelter and medicine].

 

Monks help lay people by:

1. Enjoining them from evil actions.

2. Enjoining them in goodness.

3. Assisting them with kind intentions.

4. Making known to them things not heard before.

5. Explaining and clarifying things they have already heard.

6. Pointing out the way to heaven, teaching them the way to happiness and prosperity.

 

B. Helping one another for social harmony, i.e. helping one another and contributing to creating social peace, stability and unity according to the four principles for helpful integration (saïgahavatthu), namely:

1. dàna: giving, sharing (helping through money and material goods).

2. piyavàcà: amicable speech (helping through words).

3. atthacariyà: helpful action (helping through physical or mental effort).

4. samànattatà: participation (helping through participation in constructive action and problem solving; being equal by virtue of the Dhamma and sharing both weal and woe).
