Immorals Relation to Morals

( Ledi Sayadaw )
“Immorals are also causally related, by way of more powerful sufficing condition, to morals. For instance, some on this earth, having done wrong, repent their deeds and better themselves to shun out all such evil deeds, by moral acts such as giving charity, observing the precepts and practicing jhana and magga. Thus the evil deeds they have done are related, by way of a stronger sufficing condition, to moral acts they cultivate later.”
