Achourya (Sanskrit: अचौर्यः, IAST: Acauryaḥ ) or Asteya (Sanskrit: अस्तेय; IAST: asteya) is the Sanskrit term for “non-stealing”

It is a virtue in Hinduism

The practice of asteya demands that one must not steal, nor have the intent to steal another’s property through action, speech and thoughts

Asteya is considered one of five major vows of Hinduism and Jainism

It is also considered one of ten forms of temperance (virtuous self-restraint) in Indian philosophy
