Ann, they were puritanical but more importantly, in this karmic context, they attempted to force their puritanical beliefs, etc. on the people of India. Any use of force I think carries greater karmic impact: what goes around, comes around. I'm sure all conquerors attempt to squash the culture of those they conquer so the Brits are not the only ones guilty of this.

But what comes first? Are they puritanical and then squelch the natural and healthy sexual natures of the people of India (!) and then become subject to the karma of having done that by becoming subject to "a puritanical, unhealthy attitude towards sexuality"? This sounds like an endless loop. Help, I'm confused.
