Attadaṇḍa Sutta — Taking Up A Weapon

At one time the Buddha’s relatives, the Sakyā, were taking up arms to fight with their neighbours, the Koliyā, over the irrigation waters of the river Rohīṇī, which divided their territories. The Buddha admonished them, asking them which was more valuable, blood or water, and the conflict was averted.
