    Religions provide various forms of motivation for moral action. This article takes Buddhism as an example from within the Indian 'family' of religions and seeks to identify the doctrinal and cultural principles on which ethical decisions are taken. Although beginning from very different religious premises, it is argued that the conclusions to which Buddhism tends are broadly similar to those found within mainstream Christianity. This article is reprinted in RAFT, the Journal of the Buddhist Hospice Trust, 27; Spring 2005; pp 3-7
