Assimilating the Value of Values – The Prerequisite of a Steady Mind

Since childhood we are told to follow certain moral and ethical values, such as non-injury, truthfulness, non-stealing, humility, charity etc. They represent certain Universal pragmatic attitudes that religious scriptures confirm. Are they really that important? What’s the harm in bending them from time to time to suit our needs when they appear to be hurdles to achieving our “practical” goals and desires?  The presentation will explore these questions and explore if assimilating the true import of these values is a prerequisite for a steady, objective and conflict-free mind.
