High ideals are inspired by dharma. The forefathers imbibed them along with the breast-milk of their mothers. Therefore, their practice of dharma was pure, praiseworthy and productive of the highest good. It was believed in those ancient days that the festive feeding of the hungry, provision of houses for those without shelter, the construction of temples, the digging of tanks and wells, were all conducive to the happiness of man. Good men who propagated such ideals were discovered and gathered, fostered and fenced; entire villages were earmarked for them and cultivable land allotted for their upkeep. The cool comforting moonlight of the fame of these leaders and guides has lated even unto this day, providing unshakeable examples of love, compassion and wisdom in the service of humanity.
