Violence has increased in the world today. In this modern age, it is violence that has emerged as one of the most common causes of human suffering. The quest of material benefits has resulted in growing conflicts between individuals, groups and nations. Truly one ought to blame the modern ways of living for the violent tendencies that have taken strong roots in man. The world is desperately in need of non-violence as a way of life to spread the gospel of love, brotherhood and peace. Man must awaken and realise that the world of violence in which he is living can blow up on his face at any time. Before time runs out, man must realise the folly of indulging in violence and give it up. Only the path of non-violence can truly help mankind release from all ills and bring about harmony in the world. It is said “Non- violence is the law of species as the violence is the law of brute”.
