Let peace prevail

Every individual can find peace within the self through peaceful actions. Hence, as we act peacefully, peace becomes a natural state of our being that spreads all round.

There is no doubt that within each of us, there is an innate spiritual desire for peace that naturally evokes feelings of compassion, love and kindness.

When our minds are filled with peaceful thoughts and feelings, with good wishes for each human being and for the world, peaceful actions automatically emerge from within us, because of which we not only deplore killing, but also harmful thoughts, words and actions that include violence to the natural environment, having the intent to injure, and even violence committed in our thoughts.

A person who follows a non-violent lifestyle is an instrument of world peace. Hence, anybody with a perceptive consciousness understands that a world filled with fragmented minds and hearts, cannot be transformed into a state of peace because peace is the natural result of a personal choice to live a lifestyle that brings injury to no one and peace first to the self and then naturally to the world.

Vegetarianism can play a pivotal role in minimising violence to other living beings, as it brings a feeling of compassion and love for all beings. Every day, while having meal, a vegetarian person is reminded of the importance of not killing, even for the sake of food.

The moment we realise that we don't need to kill any living being to feed ourselves, it becomes easier to realise that we don’t need to injure or kill other people as well for our selfish motives.

Spirituality is yet another factor that plays an important role in curbing the ever-increasing violence in society. A spiritual way of living helps in the development of the subtle spiritual dimensions of human awareness. This expansion of knowledge and understanding about life can become a source of peace and happiness for humankind as a natural instinct.

In such an environment, the heart can become the centre of human relatedness allowing us to live together in harmony.

The spiritual paradigm of transformation of the self leading to transformation of the world is taking root now and unfolding a new future for the human family.

As the old paradigm of “peace through violence” is proving to be untenable, a classic rebirth of a peaceful civilisation is taking place in the midst of the death of the old, decayed and the peaceless civilisation.
