No body can enlighten you, you have to go within your Self, you will surely find an enlightement. What Oshoji has said is of aparticular language. There is no exect match to the Sanskrit word Ahimsa, no-violence is not actually the exect world, but it is near-possible word just to convey the meaning. When you try to go within you will start realising. I am happy to know youself and I will be learning some thing new, Rameshji.
Respected Arya Bhushanji,
I am glad to receive your kind response to my discussion point. If iI am right, I still remember your kind presence alongwith Sushri Rekha Vyas in a function held at PSK, Laxminagar, last month to falicitate Mr Vinod Kumar Mishra, the distinguished author. Now I have been again privileged to have an interaction with you.
I suppose you are absolutely right when you say that there is no substitute for Sanskrit word AHIMSA in any other language and to realise it I will have to peep into my own self. Sometimes I feel that the sanskrit word AHIMSA may be used as deterrent to HIMSA (Violence). May I ask you, don't we do every day one or more acts of violence in whatever form either for our livelihood or for any other purpose but obviously we seem to be experts in covering our such mischeivous acts. Anyway, I would try to seek an answer to my question(s) in the life-philosophy of Gandhiji himself. Meanwhile I convey my sincere gratitude for responding to me.
Regards. Ramesh Tailang
Just remembered a view given by Sri. Eknath Easwaran about this: "The Sanskrit word ahimsa does not contain a negative or positive connotation as does the English translation "non-violence".The implication of ahimsa is that when all violence subsides in the human heart, the state which remains is love. It is not something we have to acquire; it is always present, and needs only to be uncovered. This is our real nature, not merely to love one person here, another there, but to be love itself. Satyagraha is love in action." (Gandhi the Man- P.53 Jaico Books).
Therefore, I think, we can see a theory and its practice in Ahimsa and Satyagraha, and fearlessness is the key to both.
Kindly accept my sincere gratitude for your wise response. This will certainly help me in realizing the AHIMSA which is none other than the real nature of man (Manushya ka swabhav). With warm regards, Ramesh Tailang
