Just A Little Peace

The Buddha’s words ex­em­plify peace, teach us peace, and lead to the ul­ti­mate peace of Nibbana. It is a sad thing that in the com­plex­i­ties and con­tra­dic­tions of Buddhist his­tory, peace has some­times been sac­ri­ficed on the al­tar of Buddhist na­tion­al­ism. By ask­ing the hard ques­tions and ac­cept­ing the an­swers fear­lessly we can ar­rive at the es­sen­tial, the true state of peace, for the sake of which all Buddhist ethics, med­i­ta­tion, and wis­dom are taught.
