In this episode, we discover what right intention is. The Buddha said, “And what is right intention? It is the intention of renunciation, goodwill, and harmlessness. This is called right intention” (SN 45.8). Right intention is the intention directed as renunciation, goodwill, and compassion. Wrong intention is the opposite of this, it is being motivated by sense desire, ill will, and harmfulness.
