I wanted to share this video because I’m relieved that someone is speaking out. Let’s not let another 30 years of destruction and grief be repeated again. Let’s work together to stop this conflict before it escalates. Let’s not let the paradise that is Sri Lanka be turned into hell.
“We should be alarmed if our society is moving towards another conflict again… we can blame our foregone generation for the last war. But, if the same thing repeats, it is a sign of our failure. It is our responsibility to prevent such a thing from happening again” – Ven Dhammananda, Lecturer at the University of Kelaniya.
One thought on “There is no other way to solve human problems other than with loving-kindness and compassion”
The wise Buddhist saying: Hatred does not cease hatred is so important in this context. We need ot look at action of people from their point of view and try to understand the real motives. Once we understand motives it helps us empathize with their action. If all parties in a conflict has this mindset , imagine what a wonderful world we can live in.
