The five basic moral precepts, undertaken by members of monastic orders and the laity, are to refrain from taking life, stealing, acting unchastely, speaking falsely, and drinking intoxicants. Members of monastic orders also take five additional precepts: to refrain from eating at improper times, from viewing secular entertainments, from using garlands, perfumes, and other bodily adornments, from sleeping in high and wide beds, and from receiving money.

Their lives are further regulated by a large number of rules known as the Pratimoksa. The monastic order sangha is venerated as one of the three jewels, along with the dharma, or religious teaching, and the Buddha.
