THE IMPORTANCE OF KSHATRIYA DHARMA
The New Kshatriya

Who then are these Kshatriyas? They are Hindus engaged in traditional Kshatriya activities like army, police, government, legal system, and all forms of political and social activism. They must strive to follow a true Dharmic Kshatriya spirit, rather than the convenient corruption and obsequiousness that is common in India today. As noted in the previous article, there needs to be an intellectual Kshatriya as well, with Hindu writers, thinkers, journalists and media experts.

They must seek to defend truth with the power of the word. A Kshatriya of some sort is going to exist because these social roles must be filled by someone, the question is whether it will be Dharmic or not, and whether it will raise the Dharma of India or follow some alien model that denigrates the soul of the nation. Clearly this requires a revolution in thinking and a new way of action that will take much time and effort, but without it India as nation or Hinduism as a religion will not be able to flourish.

Let us remember the true Hindu Kshatriya ideal and its spiritual root. A true Kshatriya is not violent in mind, but will only use force to protect Dharma against violent people when there is no other alternative. He will not be motivated by greed, fame or sectarian interests but will work selflessly for the universal good. Above all he is never a hypocrite, he will do what he says and say what he really does. He will stand firm against all odds, even if it means to fight against a superior enemy. He will not quit without a fight, though he will not resort to violence unless he has no other choice. Such was the warrior spirit of Arjuna and this is what the nation of India really needs today, in fact all countries need it in this era of corruption and showmanship.
