The Spiritual Warrior of Non-Violence

The root of all Dharma practice is non-violence. The practice of non-violence is as follows: when people inflict violence upon you, you do not retaliate with violence. If somebody insults, criticizes or strikes you, and you do not retaliate in kind, such a practice is non-violence. The practitioner who can do this is a spiritual warrior.
