Cruelty-free lifestyle, Ahimsa, and respect towards all creations are clear signs of human refinement. At this juncture of our existence when isolation became essential, reunification should happen based on humanity and human refinement, not again on the basis of caste, country, culture, color, religion or language boundaries. Humans need humanity to be humans and humanity needs a world without boundaries.
On Essential Humanity
The generations to come will consider the pre-technology era as the dark age and the post-high-tech communication era as the new age. But looking at awareness levels, mankind has not progressed a bit. In fact, technology seems to have made human minds degenerated, more self-centered and insensitive. The virtual life has created distance more than connections, or perhaps unreal, imaginary connections such as social media platforms. So, perhaps the dark age began when technology made us islands instead of unifying the world in love and harmony.
India never had a dark age. When generations lived in respect and harmony, there cannot be a dark age. India explored, identified and realized the essence of existence, the God particle within every creation, loved it and respected it. India believed in Ahimsa (non-violence) as the highest righteous duty and never attacked any nations. This identification spared this land from the state of ignorance connected to non-understanding of truth and value of life. Our great literature like Vedas, Upanishads and Puranas are all testimonials of great refinement. We never had a dark age.
On Dark ages
Violence, even murder happens in thoughts, words and actions. There is a price to pay for all our gratifications, positive or negative. Price is higher for the negative, just like the price for alcohol which ruins our health is higher than the healthy fresh water.
The best stuff of the world is usually free, such as sunshine, air, spring and river water in nature, unconditional love, etc. But there is a heavy price for negative thoughts, words and actions such as hatred, jealousy, revenge, character assassination (which has the same price as murder) so on and so forth. The price (debt) of murder, including character assassination, will take lifetimes to pay off. It even gets accrued, when many people are negatively affected because of our expressions and actions, we have to pay for all of their contamination which we created. Hence, Ahimsa (non-violence) is indeed our security and guarantee for a debt-free existence.

When MAN KILLS, MAN DIES.
Ahimsa – the highest dharma
When an animal is killed, a part of human conscience gets killed too.
When an animal is killed, a part of human-ness gets killed too.
When an animal is killed, a part of human gets killed too.
Never kill any being. All have the right to live a full and complete life. Never destroy. Never destruct. Any kind of violence – in thoughts, words and actions, violates and contaminates our inner space. Live and let live. Never manipulate minds against kindness and compassion in the name of food. Let AHIMSA (non-violence) be the attitude of your life.
Talks on “Ahimsa – the highest dharma”
If no words of compassion and kindness come from our mouth, what is this mouth for?
If no acts of compassion and kindness get performed with these hands, what are these hands for?
If no steps are taken to help the helpless, what are these feet for?
If no thoughts of compassion and kindness sprout from our mind, what is this mind for?
If no design for doing good without expectations takes birth in our intellect, what is this intellect for?
If no love flows from our heart, what is this heart for?
Our life is exactly as we are.
Be good. Do good. Ahimsa is the greatest of Dharma.
Talks on Truth of Existence
If PEACE is your priority, you should live in the present. Look at the peaceful people around us, children, animal people and bird people. They all live in the present and adapt to life as it unfolds. When we accept life as it unfolds and adapt to it naturally and willingly without resistance, we will always remain peaceful. Being natural is being peaceful. Being Alert. Being Aware. Adapting and being flexible in the jungle of existence keeps you stable and peaceful. Flexibility and adaptability are key ingredients for peace of mind. Ahimsa (Non-Violence) is equally important, in our thoughts, expressions and actions. Peace is an attitude, a lifestyle. Peace is our very nature. Peace is how we naturally are.
