Economics Of Mahavira ► 03 ► [03.20] Economics of Non-violence and Peace - Objective of Digvrat

Posted: 30.01.2006

Digvrat had one basic objective. It was to put restraint on imperialistic (dominance of one over the other) mentality. Be it economic or geographical empire, it will not go beyond a particular limit.

There was a limit to transportation: it will not go beyond five hundred kilometers or such limit. Under this principle, there was a linear restriction in a linear direction, curved direction or downward direction or in any given direction. Outside this limit, one will not sell anything; one will neither import nor export. The restriction was with reference to direction.

The important principle proved to be effective in putting a check on imperialistic mentality.
