I would like to know if the statement Dharma Himsa Tathaiva Cha is authentic and if it has any scriptural reference. I know that Ahimsa Paramo Dharmah is a statement from the Mahabharata. Other than Swami Chinmayananda's article (wherein he does not provide any scriptural reference) I haven't found any reference for Dharma Himsa Tathaiva Cha.

Just to be clear, by scriptures I mean The Upanishads, Puranas, Gita etc..not articles written by Swamis, Gurus etc..

Thanks !
