Abstract (Original Language): 
Philanthropy is the key feature of Indian morals. Though it remained constant as an ideal moral norm throughout its history, its practical realization underwent numerous modifications and transformation. Max Weber explains: 'India and Egypt were the two areas where classically charity developed. In India, Jainism and Buddhism were its preeminent exponents. In general, Indian philanthropy rested on the conception of all life as a unity.

Nirvana means, literally, 'a blowing out' as of candle – perfect inward peace – Liberation from mind. As
Max Muller, “it represented the entrance of the soul into rest, subduing of all wishes and desires,
indifference to joy and pain to good and evil”. (Frank S. Dobbins, Error's Chains: How Forged and Broken
