Mahatma 's "Ahimsa " theory !





sanju
The world appreciates the "ahimsa " (non violence ) theory for protest and in general popularized by "MAHATMA GANDHI" , do we recall some of the greats from other parts of the world , who have gestured few words of appreciation or influence of his theory on them ?

ya , but ahimsa is pretty much not the word nowadays. Youve got to stand up for what you feel is wrong. What use is ahimsa if you do not last to follow it!!

Non-violence is very effective. Martin-Luther King Jr, Nelson Mandela, M.K. Ghandi and other people following this priciple were very successful!

Violent means create violent ends. It doesn't really solve problems, it creates more, or it destroys so much that people are just in shock and numb and try to forget about it. If you fight fire with fire, what you usually get is more fire, not less. The truly non-violent person will win over all the rest because he will be respecting others and creating positive connections. Violent responses will provoke more violence.

Look at the USA... so many guns per person, and a warlike culture. They have some of the highest murder rates in the world. People there are much more fearful of one another than in Canada. I have seen it.

Using Ahimsa while protesting and standing up for yours anyone's rights is probably the best way to fight. Our governments today are stronger militarily than any decedent group. Any violence by protesters gives them a licence to use their guns....
