Despite the promotion of ahimsa within Santana Dharma, there is also the concept of righteous or religious war in Hinduism known as Dharmayuddha, where violence is used as a last resort after all other means have failed. Examples of this include in the Mahabharata, where Krishna instructs Arjuna to carry out his duty as a warrior and fight, and in the Ramayana where Ravana is defeated by Rama. Martyrdom in battle is seen as highly noble in Hinduism, which is evident in the Bhagavad Gita where Krishna states
“Either being slain you will attain the heavenly worlds or by gaining victory you will enjoy the earthly kingdom; therefore O Arjuna, rise up and fight”
When I read the above line again and again,I wondered what Arjuna would be thinking by then. Few words came to my mind.
Just give me one call
And every bit of my flesh will be yours
Every drop of my blood will sing your glory
Every wound of mine will be your offering
My heart beats will play Tandava
I will serve for your army till my last breath
I will protect you before I fall
And when my mortal body will be burnt
I will rise up to touch your feet
My ashes will provide you the warmth
Bless me that you will always accompany me
Bless me that in the end, I will re-born..
