Mana: The Mind

As per Ayurveda – which has its essence and inspiration from Vedic knowledge and wisdom –  says “Healthy mind leads to a healthy body”. Amrita Bindu Upanishad suggests “Mind is the cause for both; problems as well as solution.” The mind is the tool which enables us to understand and undertake that which is unknown. The unknown can be known exclusively through the known. Since mind is the instrument of knowing – we need to know our mind first!

Kautilya’s Perspective on Justice & Revenge

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. The Ahimsa of Kautilya was based on the idea of Dharma. Ahimsa doesn’t mean you will never hurt anyone – it means you won’t hurt anyone unless they attack you first. It’s a no-first-strike policy. 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.

Politics, therefore, became a domain of extreme materialists and greed-filled individuals.

There’s a reason why Kautilya didn’t suggest direct armed conflicts or war. He proposed the idea of Sam, Dam, Dand and Bhed. Bhed implied war and it always came last. The options before Bhed were more incisive and meticulous. It sought after every possible way to resolve a conflict using extremely peaceful to complexly tactful means. It often began with contemplation, followed by actions that were not extreme but capable of bringing one’s enemy to his senses or heels.

Atman: The Ultimate Power Within  

Vedic teachings emphasize understanding and realizing the Atman also called Purusha.  While “Soul” could also be a translation of this word, as it is “the spiritual or immaterial part of a human being or animal, regarded as immortal,” a much better word to understand Atman is “Consciousness.” Understanding this consciousness and, harnessing it with wisdom for the welfare of all is the main objective of Vedic practices.
