Dr.A.T.Ariyaratne said that peace could dawn in the country only through non-violence (ahimsa) and not through war. Spiritual guidance should be provided to the people in taking decisions for the well-being of the country, he said.

Governments in power in early days implemented decisions taken at the rural level thus ensuring communal harmony among all communities. Dissension and difference of opinion arose when central authority started to impose decisions against the wishes of the people. Powers should be devolved to the grass root level, he added.
