About Violence

In a Dharma context, violence is the intentional use of physical force that causes harm, pain, injury, or death to living beings or damage to property. This contradicts the core Buddhist principles of non-violence (ahimsa) and compassion. Buddhism teaches that violence arises from negative mental states such as anger, hatred, and greed. These actions create suffering for both the victim and the perpetrator, disrupting the path to enlightenment. Preventing violence involves cultivating loving-kindness, empathy, and mindfulness, which foster inner peace and harmonious relationships with others.
