A seasoned warrior tries to avoid battles many times. That is not his weakness. It’s his compassion. Because he knows how much damage he can do if he gets down to it.
For every battle he fights, he avoids a hundred others, & gives it his 100x. So think before you pick a battle with such a warrior.
Being a warrior is a tapasya in itself. It’s not about fighting anyone. It’s about conquering yourself. Only one who has conquered his/her own self can conquer anyone else.
