In order to eliminate their desires for worldly things and thus end the cycle of rebirths, the Buddha taught his people to follow eight principles. These eight principles were to know the truth, resist evil, say nothing that might be hurtful, respect life, free the mind from evil, work in service towards neighbors, control evil thoughts, and practice meditation.
Few things help an individual more than to place responsibiltiy upon him and to let him know that you trust him.
