Temperance is all about restraining impulses, such as desire, vanity or anger. If you are able to control these impulses people will call you modest, humble, prudent and forgiving.
The Practice of Forgiveness towards those who act differently than what your Reality tells you is of vital importance. Respect their different point of view. Being able to forgive will make your feelings towards the other more positive.
Be humble, let your accomplishments speak for themselves. Do not regard yourself superior to someone else. There is nothing humble on feeling superior to another living being. Focus only on being superior to your former self. Focus on your own spiritual development.
Be prudent. Be careful about your choices. Aristotle referred to it as 'not taking undue risks, and not saying or doing things that might later be regretted.'
Temperance is an essential part of Buddhism. It appears as a cornerstone in the The Five Precepts that explain an ethical life. These are to refrain from, killing, stealing, sexual misconduct, false speech and using intoxicants that cloud the mind.
