Violence means violence and that
Has a dangerous precedence.

Without the equipment of non-violence
That has a appearance in the
inner heart of soulfence.

An Ode To A Saint Of Peace

An Ode to a Saint of Non-Violence – Mahatma Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi

That will get India freedom

Non-Violence Great Virtue

Non-violence is
Great virtue
Non-violence
Born out of
Non-attachment.

Passion, anger
And greed are
Triple gates
To hell
these are born out
of Attachment.
