Understanding Economy from the Vedic Perspective of Karma

In Vedic (or ancient) India, kings and their counsellors were first taught Artha Sutras, which, in very simple terms, explained complex connections between people’s pursuit of happiness, good conduct, the meaning and relevance of well-earned wealth, it’s relativity to governance, and the best suitors to hold key positions in government, and the like. In simple terms, these Sutras, or axioms, explained the connection between economics, politics, and diplomacy. That was also because, unless an individual understands those three subjects, it’s virtually impossible to understand a leader’s role, let alone deliver on it effectively.

Ahimsa: A Vedic Perspective

Dharma is not doing to others what you don't like being done by someone else to you. Dharma is that which sustains the order in self (mind), family, society, nation and the world at large.

In the absence of justice, error and evil thrive. Truly, evil only gets worse when those who are righteous resort to revenge and do not insist upon justice.

You can resort to retaliation during the war with pre-emptive strikes only if you are sure that the first strike would be brutal or lethal, leaving you no retaliatory capabilities.
