In this challenging talk Ratnaguna explores some of the causes of violence, giving examples of violence in the Buddhist tradition. He also talks about the Buddha's own radical non-violent approach, mirrored in Dalai Lama's, Thich Nhat Hanh's and Sangharakshita's words. He ends with encouraging us to take up five practical and helpful precepts. (given 8-10-2012 and part of a series on 'Buddhism and the big questions.')
