CHAPTER 4 Empires of Indian and China



o India
- India’s view of taking a human life is probably the most outlawed crime in this chapter than any other period in history that we have covered. Two major religions disbursed over Indian, Hinduism and Buddhism. Both religions strictly enforced non- violence. The purpose of their life was to achieve nirvana. In order to reach this nirvana, they had to have good karma. Karma relied mostly on behavior and your place in society. If you have good karma you can achieve dharma which will allow you to move up in the caste system in your next life. No one wanted to stay in the position they were in so they had good behavior so they move up. This made crime at in all time low. www.geocities.com/caveofthesun/ancient.htm}





- Their caste system affects their daily life. Their caste has motly to do with their place in society and their occupation or class. Farmer were usually the poor people and there of course were the rich nobles. But, in one way or another they relied on one another. The nobles had to depend on farmers to get their food. If you were a rich noble you wouldn’t be working in the field, which was the farmer’s job. Same with houses and buildings, nobles couldn’t build their houses so they relied on the builders.
