This is a qualitative research with two objectives, namely; 1) to study the criteria for the Five Precepts in the Buddhist scriptures and the operating standard for the Five Precepts Villages project, 2) to develop and present the norm of the criteria for the Five Precepts for the promotion of peace of the person and society.

While the Forty-indicator standard for the implementation of the Five Precepts village is a key success of the project.

Lastly, the norm of the criteria for the Five Precepts shows the fivefold peace; peace of life, asset, couple, data and information, and wisdom respectively.
