This causes adversity aswell to those who kill, both now and in endless approaching rebirths.

"Being apprenticed that all accomplishments accept to could could cause after-effects to the doer, some abide to annihilate and abundance up added adversity on themselves in the future. Each time they kill, a allotment of themselves accept to aswell die in this present life. And the adversity continues even by activation in hell worlds!"
