Virtue (Skt. kuśala or kalyāṇa; Tib. དགེ་བ་, gewa, Wyl. dge ba) or positive behaviour (Tib. ལས་དགེ་བ་, lé gewa, Wyl. las dge ba) is defined as the mind's conscious intention to reject negative practices and to adopt their opposites. These are the active protection of life, the practice of generosity, the perfect observance of the vows, the speaking of the truth, the reconciliation of disputes, peaceful and disciplined speech, speaking what is consonant with Dharma, satisfaction with little, loving attitudes toward others, belief in the doctrine of karma, and so on.[1]
