किं ते जुज्झेण बज्झओ ?
Fight with the internal perversions, what is the benefit of fighting externally?
Therefore, the spiritual people say that man should avoid external war. Man wants peace. War is opponent of peace; therefore, for peace loving it is proper to keep away from war. Nevertheless, according to psychologists war is the basic nature; hence, one cannot always keep away from war also. What to do under such conditions? Spiritualists have given a beautiful answer to this. According to them a person has to fight with his own mind so that perversions are not generated. It is also said, ‘Mind’s defeat is defeat; mind’s victory is victory.’
