If we behave always as self-centered human beings, preoccupied with the anxiety to preserve the entity of the self and gratify every wish of the self, there are tensions, conflicts, and clashes among us. If the human race had looked upon aggression as desirable, natural, glorifiable, we would not have proceeded from primitive state of human existence to the creation of a society. There is and there will be a conscious, organized effort towards restraining, curbing, controlling this violent, aggressive tendency. The direction of human civilization is not from violence to more violence, but violence towards less violence, towards absence of violence, towards peace. Peace requires a different perspective of life, it requires purification of perception. Life itself is divine, it is something sacred, and reverence for life is the perfume of religiosity. So peace is not only non-war, or non-aggression. It is moving from a fragmentary, partial, or compartmental perspective of life to a holistic perspective of life where cooperation replaces confrontation.
