No man has ever been able to
describe God fully
. The same is true of ahimsa.
Ahimsa- it is the only
When the practice of ahimsa becomes
God will reign on earth as He does in heaven
In ahimsa, the
bravery consists in dying, not in killing
Man as animal is violent but as spirit is non-violent. The moment he awakes to the spirit within he cannot remain violent. Either he progresses towards ahimsa or
rushes to his doom
Where there is ahimsa there is Truth and
Truth is God
. How He manifests Himself I cannot say. All I know is that He is all-pervading and
where He is all is well
Ahimsa is an attribute of the brave.
and ahimsa do not go together any more than water and fire.
In ahimsa it is not the votary who acts in his own strength. Strength comes from God. Never have I attributed any independant strength to myself.
It is likely that what we believe to be an act of ahimsa (non-violence) is an act of himsa (violence)
in the eyes of God
If ahimsa does not appeal to your heart, you should discard it.
The ideally non-violent state will be an ordered anarchy
I have known many meat eaters to be far more non-violent than vegetarians.
The more I practice it the clearer I see how far I am from the
of ahimsa in my life.
Ahimsa is always infallible. When therefore, it appears to have failed, the failure is due to the inaptitude of the votary.
