Description

When we see reports and videos of war and violence, we may experience feelings of helplessness that there's no possibility for us to stop all the carnage from happening.

However, there is one thing we always can do, which no one can take away from us:We ourselves can remain unwaveringly committed not to harm any being;Not to go to war ourselves;Not to kill, but to remain peaceful and to continue developing loving kindness.
Hatred can never be overcome by hatred, as the Buddha expounded in Dhammapada Verse #5
We can't allow the anger, violence and aggression of others to cause us to become angry and aggressive ourselves. Only if we can continue to practice non-violence and kindness will we be able to reduce the negative energy of anger in this world.www.dhammagiri.netwww.youtube.com/channel/UCJINt0JJBfFm_x0FZcU9QJwwww.tinyletter.com/dhammagiri/archive
