Rectitude

From The SpiritWiki


The word Rectitude is a Buddhist term syncretic with Alignment. It is used in The Book of the Great Decease in the context of comparing the "losses of the wrong-doer" who, through lack of rectitude, falls into poverty, gains a bad reputation, and experiences existential anxieties, with the gains of the "well-doer" who gains wealth, a good reputation, and the resolution of existential anxiety.
