the hindu culture discovered many thousands of years ago that if you got a relatively good body, you had a reasonable, mild man. So the way a reasonable good body behaved became for them the touchstone for morality. when morals are built from the body’s behavior, you get a moral structure and behavior which respect the rights and privileges of other individuals. this is a very interesting concept; it has surfaced every once in a while down through the thousands of years that man has been on earth. it went completely out during the more rigid christian era, when the church began to dictate morals from above rather than from within. in doing so, a rigidity came into the concept of morals which people are now rebelling against and have been for the last 100 years.
