Let Peace Prevail on Earth – Ven Dr K Dhammananda Thero

compress_PeacePeace is always obtainable. The way to peace is not only through prayers and rituals. Peace is the result of man’s mental development, harmony with his fellow beings and with his fellow beings and with his environment. The peace that we try to introduce by force is not a lasting peace. It could be likened to a truce between the conflict of selfish desire and fleeting worldly conditions.

Peace cannot exist on this earth without the practice of kindness and tolerance. To be tolerant, we must have proper understanding, with unbiased mind. The Buddha says,

No enemy can harm one so much as one’s own thoughts of craving, hate and jealousy.
– Dhammapada

Buddhism is a religion of perfect understanding because it preaches a life of self-restraint and self-reliance. Buddhism teaches a life based not on rules but on principles.
