From Inner Peace Comes Outer Peace
The great Buddhist Master Shantideva says:
There is no evil greater than anger,
And no virtue greater than patience.
Therefore, I should strive in various ways
To become familiar with the practice of patience.
Imagine what the world would be like if we all conquered our anger! The danger of war would evaporate, armies would become unnecessary and soldiers would have to look elsewhere for work. Machine guns, tanks and nuclear weapons—instruments useful only to the angry mind—could be put away, as all conflicts, from wars between nations to arguments between individuals, came to an end. Even if this universal peace and harmony seems too much to hope for, imagine the freedom and peace of mind each of us individually would enjoy if we managed to free ourself completely from the distorted and destructive mind of anger.
