THE TWO WINGS OF DHARMA
This sad state of affairs might cause some Hindus to think that the yogic principle of non-violence has no validity, and to think that the Indian sages were wrong in making ahimsa or non-violence the supreme principle of human conduct. This view would, however, only uphold the value of violence, which certainly has not brought any lasting benefit to humanity and is the source of most of the problems in the world today. It would destroy the deep sensitivity of the Hindu religion and place it on par with less evolved teachings.

The real problem, if we examine the traditional Hindu teachings about non-violence, is that the modern Hindu political practice of non-violence is often contrary to the tradition. The Hindu tradition of non-violence has always included the way of the warrior and honored the value of a defensive or Dharmic war. The real problem is that Hindus have failed to implement non-violence in the right manner. This is strange because Hindu scriptures and Shastras clearly delineate the right way to practice non-violence, which does not mean passively offering yourself to your enemy to do with as he wishes.
