Abstract

This is a qualitative research with two objectives, namely; 1) to study the criteria

Precepts are important standard in terms of the practical observance of the pañcasīla. While
the Forty-indicator norm for the implementation of the Five Precepts village is a key success
of the project. The development of criteria for the Five Precepts is cautiously carried out
in order to get two new criteria:- 1) a developed criterion for diagnosis the status of the
Five Precepts, and 2) a developed criterion for diagnosis the penalty of violated Precepts.
