No to surrender to any form of evil powers

最近幾日,緬甸僧侶發動多次示威,要求當地的軍政府就早前打傷僧侶道歉,否則將會拒絕接受軍政府有關人的捐贈與布施。緬甸人大多是佛教徒,僧侶廣受人們尊敬,對僧侶不敬是十分嚴重的事情。緬甸軍政府以武力驅散示威僧侶,有可能招致公眾憤怒。佛教是一個提倡和平的宗教,不主張使用武力解決問題,但對於社會的不公義是不會退縮的。

It is the duty of every cultured man to find all possible ways and means to settle disputes in a peaceful manner, without declaring war to kill his fellow men. The Buddha did not teach His followers to surrender to any form of evil power, be it man or supernatural being.

Ven. K. Sri Dhammananda,
What Buddhists Believe
