Ahimsa : 7. ( Next ) PEACE : 1.
There is a hidden power in Ahimsa which protects its practitioners. The invisible hand of God gives protection. There is no fear. What can pistols and swords do ?
Even now there are people who do not give the least pain to any living creature. They carry sugar and rice for distribution to ants in their holes. They do not use lights at night for fear of killing the small insects. They are very careful while walking in the streets, as they do not wish to trample upon small insects.
Blessed are these men. They will soon see God as they have very soft hearts.
Swami Sivananda- 8th. of September, 1887 to 14th of July 1963
PEACE : 1.
Peace is a state of quiet. It is freedom from disturbance, anxiety, agitation, riot of violence. It is harmony, silence, calm, repose, rest. Specifically, it is the absence or cessation of war.
Peace is the happy, natural state of man. It is his birthright. War is his disgrace.
Everybody wants peace and is clamouring for peace; but peace does not come easily. Even if it comes, it does not last for a long time.
