What Are We To Do?

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

Inter-religious dialogue and respect, which help create a more harmonious society, still have a long way to go in some parts of Asia. New and extremist approaches to religion are present in a big way and are very determined to make as many converts as they can in any way they can. Someone recently sent me this video which, as distressing as it is, is worth watching. It starts by showing the president of South Korea sending his best wishes to the members of the Seoul Hope Church. It then moves on to give an example of a typical prayer session in that same church. I am reliably informed that this sort of thing is quite common in Korea. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uGQzS7RA9zU&feature=email
In the Dhammapada 222 the Buddha said: ‘Overcome anger with love, evil with good, miserliness with generosity and falsehood with truth.’ But will such thoughts, attitudes and actions alone be enough to deal with hostility like this?

Live in Joy

Live in Joy, In love,
Even among those who hate.

Live in joy, In health,
Even among the afflicted.

Live in joy, In peace,
Even among the troubled.

Look within. Be still.
Free from fear and attachment,
Know the sweet joy of living in the way.
