The Vedic antidote to violence is contained in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. It says:
“Tat sannidhau vairatyagah.” (Yog-Sutra, 2.35)
“In the vicinity of Yogic influence – unifying influence, integrating influence, coherent and harmonious influence – conflicting tendencies do not arise.”
When national consciousness is fully integrated and harmonious, there will not be a chance for any animosities between nations to arise.
The best defense is to prevent the enemy from arising.
“Heyam dukham anagatam.” (yog-Sutra, 2.16)
“Avert the danger before it arises.”
