The problems with this girl's life are partly a result of the failure of religion to teach and uphold cardinal human values. In modern yoga it is explained why women and men should have social equality. Also, it is explained why we should try to live in such a way as to cause the least amount of suffering to other living beings.

Science is inherently moral, because the great majority of scientists are good and decent human beings.

Being human requires a healthy mind. Religion is causing the mind to be diseased and thus we see crazy and immoral behavior from so-called pious people of all the main religions.

The Jains are kind of cute in the way they dont wont to kill anything, but their larger culture makes them part of the problem of female feticide and female newborn killings in India. Aint this a great planet with all these monkeys running around pretending to be humans.
