    A very nice video and analysis of Hindu traditions of War. Just compare it to Islamic and Christian way and you will know how balanced, human and nice Hindu system is. We have rules even for war. The Geneva convention on treatment of POWs had borrowed heavily from Hindu warfare rules.

    Thanks for the video maddy.

    I watched the whole video last night. It was boring without the presentations but still the content was interesting.
    What I conclude from the video is that the older religions are more evolved and throughout the history had better ethics of war.
    Don't want to pinpoint the religions in particular or I will get branded as Sanghi again. Lol


    It does get me thinking, had we been as barbaric as those who invaded us then India would have been much larger than what it is today.
    We were a highly evolved society and ergo believed in peace. We expected others to be as evolved as us. Prolly we were one bunch of dreamers completely alienated from reality.
