Ethical Principles include:

 - a-hiṃsā - अहिंसा
Non-harmfulness (harmlessness). To not wish harm to any living creature — not even to any lifeless object. Ahimsa is about the intent, rather than the action itself. It is an attitude of universal benevolence.
Satyagraha or holding onto truth or truth force – is a particular form of nonviolent resistance or civil resistance
