The Vedas proclaim the establishment of peaceful and prosperous
world for the people in general and for the people of the country
The four Vedas of lndia have vast reserve of knowledge relating to
all subjects touching concern of all. Therefore, it was an uphill task
to extract mandates of the Veda regarding war or battle.
Ten battles as case studies have been given to simplify the
implications of verses of the Vedas regarding war.
It is hoped that the book will be welcome by all specially the army
personnel around the World.
After retirement from the highest post in the
Indian Administrative Science, Dr. Agrawal worked as an Advocate
for more than Ten Years. At present Dr. Agrawal is the Managing
Partner of VAS Global, a New Delhi based law firm and is
practicing in Delhi High Court and the Supreme Court.
At the same time, India is always, prepared to defend
its sovereignty and integrity in self-defense. This is
accepted by all in India.
In view of this background it becomes all the
more necessary to examine what four Vedas say
about war. The Vedas are the heritage scriptures of
India. The Vedas are the repository of all kinds of
knowledge and are sources of thinking and
know ledge of the Indians. The four Vedas are very
comprehensive and contain all types of knowledge
about the individual about the world around him. It
is a difficult task to extract about the war from the
Vedas, because the Vedas go into cosmos from the
physical world. An attempt is being made in this work
to highlight about the concept of war, qualities of
personnel involved in war including the king as a
leader and conduct of war. Luckily, some ten case
studies could be mined from the huge volume of the
Vedic text which will simplify the matter for the
reader, researchers or the army personnel.
Basically, the Vedas proclaim the establishment
of peaceful and prosperous world for the people in
general and subjects of the king or kingdom or
country in particular. Peace is the bedrock of progress
and prosperity. The king or leader ensures prosperity
and security to its people. Prosperity and sense of
security bring happiness among people. The war is
also meant to bring about peace and drops of elixir
The exponents of Vedas were happy and
enthusiastic persons. They are called Aryas. They
laid down norms to lead our personal life, social life,
national life and the world as a whole. These norms
are contained in 20, 516 verses in four Vedas i.e.
Rig-Veda, Atharveda, Yajurveda and Samaveda. The
four Vedas have mostly common subjects and special
subjects like Rig-Veda deals with prayers, science
and nature; Yajurveda Karma (work) and society,
Samaveda system of prayer and music and
Atharveda the system of treatment and knowledge
of money. The four Vedas are like Sun giving light to
live and to lead a happy and prosperous life.
