What are the hinduism virtues?

Ahimsa (non-violence) - based on the concepts of atman and reincarnation.
Mind and sense control - considered essential for any form of morality.
Tolerance - necessary in order to deal with inconveniences in the performance of one's dharma.
Hospitality - demonstrating magnanimity, and the value of service (seva).
Compassion - based on notions of atman, and the ability to feel for others as we feel for ourselves.
Protection - an essential duty is to give shelter to others, especially those less fortunate.
Respect - for all living beings and for the sanctity of all life.
Wisdom - knowledge is contrasted with ignorance, the Hindu equivalent of the "good -evil" paradigm.
Austerity - essential to gain wisdom in addition to mere theoretical knowledge.
Celibacy - important for spiritual life. Only one of the four ashrams is permitted sexual gratification.
Honesty - essential to build legitimate trust within relationships and to avoid self-deception.
Cleanliness - includes external hygiene and inner purity; essential for brahmanas.

You go ahead and take the credit ! You did the research ! You deserve the credit ! Hope you have been well and things are good here . You were right , we get to spend a lot of lost time together . When I get a dizzy attack , she's right there to help ! Now my retired Doc friend only stops by once a week and checks my pulse and blood pressure which has been good !

So glad your doing better. You know, your both (and me) are at an age where we should be taking the time to "smell the roses." :)

That's the truth ! At first we kind of got in each others way , but now it's going good ! She's glad she doesn't have to hear any more of Hostess 's threats ! She gets more on unemployment than her last paycheck that they took all the cuts out of . Shame that Hostess execs were so greedy and didn't have a clue how to run a bakery !
