Violence and Religion - a Buddhist View

by Ratnaguna

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.')
