By Love Alone

Na hi verena verāni sammantīdha kudācanaṃ
Averena ca sammanti esa dhammo sanantano.

Hatreds never cease through hatred in this world; through love alone they cease. This is an eternal law.

Our society seems to be intent upon ripping itself apart at the moment and although I am clearly of the view that racially motivated hatred is wrong and must be both resisted and called out for what it is I am not of the opinion of the violence is the answer. May we reflect on the Teachings of the Blessed One and allow his Dhamma and Vinaya to be our anchor and signposts along the way.
