Ramayana: That Rama made an overture for peaceful resolution even though it was he who had been wronged, shows that he wanted to avoid war as much as possible.
Mahabharata: No overture for peace could be as great or clear as demonstrated in the Mahabharata: the Supreme Lord himself went as a peace messenger.
Bhagavad-gita: The bhakti tradition sees the Gita itself as God’s merciful overture toward the lost souls; indeed, the Gita is God’s love-letter to all of us.
Hardly concerned with unnecessary polemics, genuine spiritual seekers, who primarily focus on the inner battle with their mind, are ever ready to offer an overture to end any disagreement by taking a non-confrontational approach.
Such an overture can warm the heart and cool the head.
