Five styles of wrong livelihood (Tib. ལོག་འཚོ་ལྔ་, loktso nga, Wyl. log 'tsho lnga):

  1. hypocrisy (ཚུལ་འཆོས་, tshul 'chos)
  2. flattery (ཁ་གསག, kha gsag)
  3. soliciting (གཞོགས་སློང་, gzhogs slong)
  4. expropriating (ཐོབ་ཀྱི་འཇལ་བ་, thob kyi 'jal ba) and
  5. calculated generosity (རྙེད་པས་རྙེད་པ་འདོད་པ་, rnyed pas rnyed pa 'dod pa)

These five are mentioned in chapter five of Nagarjuna's Precious Garland, the chapter on Bodhisattvas' Conduct.
