Buddhists/morality

Question
Hello!
Why is it, according to Advayavada Buddhism, that makes people follow morality/ethics? and why should people live a moral life?

Answer
Hello Anders,
Buddhism teaches the nature of (existential) suffering and how to overcome it - the teaching is contained in the four noble truths of Buddhism (please Google) - and to be able to follow the eightfold path (the fourth truth), one must be moral (i.e. adhere to the five precepts).
Kind regards,
Advayavadananda.
