War brings Woe

Nārada-to-Yudhiṣṭhira
  • युद्धं च क्षत्रशमनं पृथिवीक्षयकारकम्।
    किंचिदेव निमित्तं च भवत्यत्र क्षयावहम्॥
  • yuddhaṃ ca kṣatraśamanaṃ pṛthivīkṣayakārakam।
    kiṃcideva nimittaṃ ca bhavatyatra kṣayāvaham॥
  • “A war annihilates the rulers and causes the ruination of the earth. Though the reasons for war are minor, they culminate into a destructive phenomenon.”
  • Nārada to Yudhiṣṭhira
    in Mahābhārata, 2.12.30.
