The bhagavad gītā on war and peace

Philosophy East and West 19 (2):159-169 (1969)
The paper discusses the attitude of the bhagavadgita in relation to war and peace and justifies its views on independent grounds. The views that the gita is primarily interested in teaching either war or peace, And that the teachings of war and peace are necessarily incompatible are repudiated. The paper shows that the central message of the gita is something more basic and comprehensive, And that the war, As envisaged by the gita, Is not incompatible with a life of peace and righteousness. In this context the concept of 'righteous war' is explained and its scrupulous and exceptional use vindicated
