Good and evil in indian buddhism: The five sins of immediate retribution [Book Review]

Journal of Indian Philosophy 35 (3):253-286 (2007)
Indian Buddhist sources speak of five sins of immediate retribution: murder of mother, father, an arhat, drawing the blood of a buddha, and creating a schism in the monastic community. This category provides the paradigm for sinfulness in Buddhism. Yet even these sins can and will, be expiated in the long run, demonstrating the overwhelmingly positive nature of Buddhist ethics
