Ahimsa Doesn't mean to become Coward

Today when we talk about Ahimsa most people think that's its a fools paradise as the word Ahimsa has been presented in such a cowardly way, it appears that only cowards follow the path of Ahimsa.What actually is Ahinsa? Shri Krishn repeatedly ask Shri Arjun to follow the path of Ahimsa in Bhagwat Geeta, many great people have defined Ahimsa as Non Violence which again by many has been transferred in to a meaning of no war & no execution.

But in Bhagwat Geeta lord though continuously ask Arjun to follow the path of Ahinsa and be a Sadhu but at the same time he also ask him to be a Khastriya and execute all his enemies, also in his own life time Shri Krishna has executed many human with evil deeds i.e. Asur.

So the word No War or No execution can never be Ahinsa, so what it is instead, the word that can come close to the meaning of Ahinsa is actually Non Hatred. If you don't hate somebody than you can't hurt him without proper reasoning, and when you don't hate somebody you can take better decision.

Unfortunately people use it to hide their incapability and translated it to the ideal condition of no war and no execution, you have to take a balance approach, not everyone understands the language of Love.

In this world some people imagine of a world with absolute non violence, it is indeed a hypothetical situation which has never been possible in this planet and will never ever be possible in future. :) OM
