FIVE REASONS NOT TO FIGHT

BHAGAVAD GITA chapter 1 text 36

Sin will overcome us if we slay such aggressors. Therefore it is not proper for us to kill the sons of Dhritarashtra and our friends. What should we gain, O Krishna, husband of the goddess of fortune, and how could we be happy by killing our own kinsmen?

PURPORT

According to Vedic injunctions there are six kinds of aggressors: (1) a poison giver, (2) one who sets fire to the house, (3) one who attacks with deadly weapons, (4) one who plunders riches, (5) one who occupies another’s land, and (6) one who kidnaps a wife. Such aggressors are at once to be killed, and no sin is incurred by killing such aggressors. Such killing of aggressors is quite befitting any ordinary man, but Arjuna was not an ordinary person. He was saintly by character, and therefore he wanted to deal with them in saintliness. This kind of saintliness, however, is not for a kshatriya. Although a responsible man in the administration of a state is required to be saintly, he should not be cowardly. For example, Lord Rama was so saintly that people even now are anxious to live in the kingdom of Lord Rama (rama-rajya), but Lord Rama never showed any cowardice. Ravana was an aggressor against Rama because Ravana kidnapped Rama’s wife, Sita, but Lord Rama gave him sufficient lessons, unparalleled in the history of the world. In Arjuna’s case, however, one should consider the special type of aggressors, namely his own grandfather, own teacher, friends, sons, grandsons, etc. Because of them, Arjuna thought that he should not take the severe steps necessary against ordinary aggressors. Besides that, saintly persons are advised to forgive. Such injunctions for saintly persons are more important than any political emergency. Arjuna considered that rather than kill his own kinsmen for political reasons, it would be better to forgive them on grounds of religion and saintly behavior. He did not, therefore, consider such killing profitable simply for the matter of temporary bodily happiness. After all, kingdoms and pleasures derived therefrom are not permanent, so why should he risk his life and eternal salvation by killing his own kinsmen? Arjuna’s addressing of Krishna as “Madhava,” or the husband of the goddess of fortune, is also significant in this connection. He wanted to point out to Krishna that, as husband of the goddess of fortune, He should not induce Arjuna to take up a matter which would ultimately bring about misfortune. Krishna, however, never brings misfortune to anyone, to say nothing of His devotees.

Criticism

“the sadhu stands there to kill those desires by the merciful stroke of the keen edge of the sacrificial knife in the form of unpleasant language. if the sadhu turns into my flatterer, then he does me harm; he becomes my enemy. if he gives us flattery then we are led to the road that brings enjoyment, but no real well-being.”
–Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati, Sri Chaitanya’s Teachings, p. 26-7

Violence and Religion

Even most Muslims are unaware of these fine points of Islamic doctrine

so, apparently is the rosen clan.

ISLAM: the word “ISLAM” simply means “submission”. in the religious context, it means complete submission to the will of Allah. “ISLAM” is not merely a religion but a complete way of life known as “Deen” in arabic. ISLAM encompasses both religion, social, political, and economic aspects of human life. as such, its translation to “religion” limits its scope to man’s expression to his acknowledgement of The Divine, a system of beliefs and practices relating to the sacred.

JIHAD: “an effort or strife”. struggling in the Cause of Allah or any other kind of an effort to make Allah’s Word(al-Islam) superior. JIHAD is regarded as one of the five pillars of ISLAM.

Allah supports a true JIHAD:
see Holy Koran 3: 13, 3: 122, 3: 123- 127

fighting for Allah’s Cause is permissible:
see Holy Koran 2: 191, 2:243, 4: 75- 76, 4: 84, 5: 33, 8: 39

surah 2, text 217:

they ask thee, concerning fighting in the prohibited month.
say: “fighting therein is a grave offense; but graver it is in the sight of Allah to prevent access to the Sacred Mosque and drive out its members. tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter. nor will they cease fighting you until they turn you back from your faith, if they can. and if any of you turn back from their faith and die in unbeliel, their works will bear no fruit, in this life or in the Hereafter; they will be companions of The Fire and will abide therein.

Questions asked by devotees and answered by Bhakti Charu Swami

regarding suicide, maharaj has cited the appropriate chapter, Chaitanya Caritamrta, Antya 2, the disappearance of chota haridas. one could scarcely read the Bhaktivedanta purports to this chapter without knowing how a devotee should veiw suicide.

Temples

maharaj is so right. if we drive devotees from the temple, if we think ourselves superior to others, or if we deny others darshan of The Deity, we could scarcely be considered a temple.
