Sustainable Ethics

  1. Dama: a Sanskrit term parallel to self-restraint, meaning to cultivate one’s mind with compassion. The essence of dama, Vidyabhaskar explains, is to “be kind”
  2. Dānam: a Sanskrit word which, the speaker explains, means to be generous by nature, and to “understand that you are not the only being in this universe”, inclusive of humans and animals alike.
  3. Dayā: the Sankrit term meaning to be compassionate and to act compassionately.
