Bhagvan Mahavira was a kshatriya.

In the Indian tradition, kshatriya and warrior have been synonyms.
Mahavira became a preacher of non-violence and yet the instincts of war did not leave him.

The ways of ahimsa and war are different.
Mahavira was a coordinator who brought accord into discord.

He transformed the meaning of war and said - have a war, fight.

Not with another, but with yourself.

Indeed this transformation is a unique solution to war.
