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.
