Financial powerhouse Dow Jones has launched dharma indexes "to track the stocks of companies that observe the values of dharma-based religions such as Hinduism and Buddhism," reports the Washington Post. "The principle of dharma contains precepts relevant to good conduct, but also the implicit requirement of mindfulness about the sources of wealth—and therefore responsible investing," said Nitesh Gor, chief executive of Dharma Investments, a firm that helped create the indexes.
