Cows and War

The Vedic Sanskrit word for war, gavisti, literally means "searching for cows", "desire for more cows"

pic104.jpg (8580 bytes)During the pastoral stage of the Vedic society, the main object of wealth was cattle.

The Kshatriyas (warrior caste) of every tribe had the function of not only acquiring cattle reared by other tribes, but also protect the cattle that belonged to their own tribe. Thus the Vedic word for war was gavisti which literally means "searching for cows".

Kshatriyas
are known as the protectors of cows. Gautam Buddha, was born a Kshatriya.
