Finding a Fidget Spinner

If you see a spider scurrying right at you, what do you do?

If you are walking down the street and you find a fidget spinner sitting on the ground, what do you do?

If you take the fidget spinner and someone asks you if you took it, what do you say?

These are important questions!

Buddha said that to stop killing anything that is living is the right thing to do.

Buddha said that to stop taking things that are not given to us is the right thing to do.

So, even if you find a toy and take it, still it is stealing because nobody gave it to you.

We want to stop killing living things.  We want to stop taking things that are not given to us.  We want to stop telling lies.

These are the right things to do.
