Put simplistically, Hindu moral precepts all stem from the notions of karma and dharma. Karma is the principle which determines the state of your next incarnation (among other things), while dharma is 'correct action' which will help 'improve' you karma. The moral codes of hinduism are very similar to the moral codes of any other religion, with the exception that they tend to take a longer view on things - there is no need for absolute perfection in this lifetime, and there is much more focus on correct action for the particular state or stage of life you find yourself in. more
