Re: Real Hindu View of Ahimsa (Non-Violence)

[Interesting stuff about ahimsa deleted]

While Mr. Vyas seems to be getting at a certain agenda, I agree with his 
reading of the shastras 100% (No we're not related--honest! <g>)  Gandhi 
was stretching things a bit when he said the Gita teaches non-violence.  
His views are more like those of Jainism.  In fact it is probable that 
his views of Ahimsa came, not from Christianity, but from a 19th century 
Jain author called Raichand (Rajachandra) Mehta whose writings were 
popular in Gujarat.
