„The difference between nonviolence and pacifism is not immediately obvious, yet it lies at the heart of the Buddha’s teaching. The way that we make choices determines our future, and at the heart of the Path that the Buddha taught is mental purification, including non-harmfulness, meaning nonviolence. But in the complex vicissitudes of the real world, we all have to disentangle the difference between kind actions and complicity that comes from the failure to exert force when called upon to do so.“ In this talk, based upon his essay and poem, the author Paul R. Fleischman clarifies the Buddha’s understanding of nonviolence.
