Meditation for Peace
Diligence in pursuing the Dhamma of peace will lead to serenity.
The beginning training lesson described already is meditation practice. This is the path for building peace in human society. This is the diligence of Phrarajbhavanavisudh (Venerable Dhammajayo Bhikkhu) who wishes to spread this method of meditation practice so the people of the world can find the marvel in each of them.This knowledge is not a nonsense theory but something which a person can perform. A person can truly see the results and attain true peace. The human mind has great power but if a person’s mind is still constrain by greed, anger, and delusion, human beings will fight with, compete with, and exploit one another.In the long history of humankind, there are conflicts and wars in every era. What is the real reason for wars and world destruction? It is because the human mind has not achieved serenity, the prerequisite for true world peace. As Luang Phaw says:
“The human mind can be the starting point of both war and peace. If the human mind is in turmoil originating from greed, anger, or delusion, feelings that are the cause of conflict will arise. Wars and fighting which have exploded from the barrels of guns around the world and caused suffering for human beings, all these originate with the fire found in people’s minds. It is like the small flame from a lit match that spreads to burn down an entire city. At the same time, when the human mind is calm and cool, full of consciousness and wisdom, endless happiness will arise. The result is peace for individuals, for families, for communities, for societies, for nations, and for the world. It is world peace that arises from inner serenity. Therefore, the mind is an important cause of world war or world peace.”
