The Non-violence or Ahimsa was first introduced from the Hindu-Religion.
Ahimsa or non-violence was created for the Braman (Priest) and Sannyasins (Monks) to live a peaceful life in a remote resort. That makes sense.
Afterward, Buddhism, Jainism, and Christians had the fatal idea to integrate Ahimsa for everybody in their Religion… And this was one of the biggest mistakes that Religions have ever done!!
If we look at the history of India and Tibet:
In the 3rd Century B. C “Ashoka The Great” made Buddhism the state Religion of India.
In the sixth century A. C., the Huns invaded India and destroyed Buddhist monasteries.
Afterward, the Muslims in the 12th century overtook India…
The very downfall for India was Buddhism.
What happens to Tibet? The same, conquered and destroyed from China…
Do we need more evidence?
If somebody or a country stick to Ahimsa, they rather more invite offenders or an invasion…
The other Buddhist countries didn’t practice Ahimsa and could defend themselves.
Even so, the Buddhists are not vegetarian, and that is a contradiction to Ahimsa.
The Christian countries made and make wars after wars and killed so many people even in the name of their Christian God that it is hard to believe in their scriptures (Bible).
I can’t believe in any scriptures when the rules are broken from the Religions Leaders!
The worst was the witch-hunt that torched millions of innocent women in the name of the Christian God!
If we compare both Religions with the Hindu scripture, we must admit that the Hindu Religion is well designed.
Killing or harming of people are not allowed for the Priests (Brahman) and Monks (Sannyasin). Threatening without fighting is allowed to defend themselves.
The Warriors (Kashitras) should be the ruler, Civil servants, and soldiers of the country.
For the Hindus, it is impossible that a Brahman should rule the country. Because a Brahman has to be peacefully when their country is attacked.
For Instance, the Dalai Lama or any Bishop would be inadequate to rule a country… Because their Darma is to be peacefully in any situation and this will never work out for any country.
We can also learn from the Hindu scripture that punishment is necessary as it is to live a high morality as the leader.
When the leader is immoral the subordinates will become unethical over time.
We need punishment to teach people to become better…
The Hindu system recommends the punishment should go in steps harder when the delinquent doesn’t obey…
For instance, your kid is beating up your other siblings.
1.) In a friendly voice, you explain that this is not good and that he should not attack other kids.
2.) In an unfriendly voice, you remind him what you have said before.
3.) In an angry voice, you repeat what you said.
4.) You threaten your kid that he will not get any pocket money if he continues.
5.) You threaten your kid to hit him when he is doing it one time again.
6.) You hit your nasty child…
Non-violence (ahimsa) would not work out to educate a nasty child/delinquent…
