Autonomous systems are increasingly being employed in almost every possible field. Their level of autonomy in decision-making is also increasing along with their complexity leading to systems that will soon be making decisions of utmost importance without any human intervention at all or with the least human involvement. It is imperative, therefore, that these machines be designed to be ethically aligned with human values to ensure that they do not inadvertently cause any harm. In this work, an attempt is made to discuss the salient approaches and issues, and challenges in building ethically aligned machines. An approach inspired by traditional Eastern thought and wisdom is also presented. 

Keywords: Artificial Intelligence, AI system, Machine ethics, Values, The Eastern perspective of intelligence.
