THE TWO WINGS OF DHARMA
There is a non-violence born out of fear or appeasement, which is a defeatist policy. This is not the yogic principle of non-violence, which arises from fearlessness and is not done to placate anyone. This is the non-violence that responds to the threat of violence by giving its perpetrator what he wants. Naturally the violent person will only get more demanding and eventually become yet more violent. This is the main mistake of modern Hindu ahimsa.

It is a great spiritual truth that non-violence in the true sense, seeking to reduce harm and suffering to creatures, does bring about the greatest development of compassion and understanding for the human soul. When a person gives up all thoughts of wishing harm to living beings, God does directly descend into that individual, who thereby becomes a guide and example for all. Yet for non-violence to be successful, it must not be done out of fear, cowardice, or as a compromise with evil. It must be practiced along with an attitude of non - appeasement. As an inner attitude it need not preclude defending oneself or one's country against attack either. It must arise from strength, not from weakness.
