It is considered as the doctrine of the stability and development of the family institution to have the noble living or Brahmacariya: a holy life. One should restrain from Akusala-kamma: or unwholesome action viz., evil deed; bad deed and should have the Sanyama or Self – Control, consisting within non-violence to oneself and others in the family and society.
