Five rooms which affect your habit
Compiled from the Most Ven. Phrabhavanaviriyakhun (Dattajivo Bhikkhu)’s teaching
 


Dining room (The room of estimation)
The real definition of dining room is the room of developing the habit of estimating how to speak and spend money.
Dhamma for this room:  the Right Speech and the Right Action
Main objectives of the dining room
1.    It is the meeting room for all members in the house everyday
2.    It is the place for developing the Right Speech and the Right Action to all members in the house
If members of your family do not have their meal together, you may face that they feel slighted and do not harmonize.  If they do not have the Right Speech, they will conflict more.
 


What you should know about the dining room
1.    The dining room is the room that all members in your house have their meal together, so you should keep it clean and keep some food in this room.
2.    The kitchen is the room for cooking and keeping all kinds of food and ingredients, so you should keep it clean and orderly.  If not, your kitchen will be the habitat of ants, mice, and pests.
3.    The living room is the room for welcoming your guests, so it is counted to be your image, you should not let it out of order.  You should keep it in order and clean it regularly.
