> Carlos Castaneda on self-importance and petty tyrants
Everyone knows that Castaneda and Rama got most of 
their ideas from reading books like the Bhagavad Gita
and the Ramayana epic. Some of these ideas they  wrote
about are almost pure Buddhism and Hinduism. In the 
latter case, Rama got most of his stuff from Blavatsky.

But, neither was apparently a real warrior. Go figure.

Bhagavad Gita 3.12:

'istan bhogan hi vo deva
dasyante yajna-bhavitah
tair dattan apradayaibhyo
yo bhunkte stena eva sah'

"In charge of the various necessities of life, the 
demigods, being satisfied by the performance of yajna 
[sacrifice], will supply all necessities to you. But 
he who enjoys such gifts without offering them to the 
demigods in return is certainly a thief."
