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. Dharma is sustained by doing things where the strong don’t thrive by suppressing the weak and the weak are not subjugated by the strong. Dharma provides a way for people to live and let live. When there’s an imposition of someone else’s will on you or your own excesses on others, that’s Himsa, causing Adharma.

Tantra, Mantra & Rajaneeti: The Unmistakable Connection

Mantra and Tantra were regarded by Kautilya as two crucial elements in the art and science of Vedic approach to politics – Rajaneeti.

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.

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.

Manas: 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!

China’s gross miscalculation at Doklam

After the economic down turn of 2008, many Chinese industries suffered a significant blow after the American and European economies began to slow down. During the early 2000s, China imported a great amount of iron ore to make steel to build its infrastructure.
