Violence and Non-Violence Further Explained

Non-Violence Pure and Simple
(based on Divine Love)
        Here one sees all as his own Self and is beyond both friendship and enmity. Never under any circumstances does a single thought of violence enter his mind.

Non-Violence of the Brave
(based on unlimited pure love)

        This applies to those who, although not one with all through actual realisation, consider no one as their enemy. They try to win over even the aggressor through Love and give up their lives by being attacked, not through fear, but through Love.

Non-Violent Violence
(based on unlimited love)
        Violence done solely to defend the weak, where there is no question of self-defence or of self-motivation.
