In Inuit mythology, Sila was, similar to mana or ether, the primary component of everything that exists; it is also the breath of life and the method of locomotion for any movement or change.

Alternative: Silap Inua

Sila is also the Sanskrit word for "ethics" or "morality" and is used in Indian-derived systems such as Hinduism and Buddhism; see Pancasila.
