Excerpts of a lecture by Lala Banarsi Dass, M. A., Head Master, Victoria College, Lashkar, Gwalior, on 29th December, 1901

I stand before you this noon to speak on a religion which was preached in this Bharat varsha in time out of mind by the Kshatriyas, a religion that was preached neither by the’ Brahmans, nor by the Vaishyas, nor by the Sudras, but I say, by the Kshatriyas. I stand before you to speak on a religion that was preached not\by such Kshatriyas as hunt life, sacrifice life, and eat life, but by Kshatriyas who made a universal procla mation Ahimsa Paramo Dharmahl Destroy no living creature Injure no living creature! This 15 the highest religion; who have said thus, spoken thus, declared thus, and explained thus: As is my pain when I am knocked, struck, menaced, beaten, burned, tormented, or deprived of life; and as I feel every pain and agony from death down to the pulling out of a hair; 1n the same way, be sure of this, all kinds’ of living beings feel the same pain and agony as I, when they are ill. Treated in the same way. For this reason, all sorts of living beings should not be beaten, nor treated with violence, nor abused, nor tormented, nor deprived of life.
