The Cessation of Hatred

12/06/12   Bir, Himachal Pradesh, India

He abused me, he beat me, he defeated me, he robbed me. In those who harbor such thoughts, hatred will never cease. He abused me, he beat me, he defeated me, he robbed me. In those who do not harbor such thoughts, hatred will cease. For hatred does not cease by hatred at any time. Hatred ceases by love. This is an old rule – from the Dhammapada

Topics covered include the freedom not to judge, the structure of negative emotions, the problem of “no” and “yes,” and an explication of the famous verses from the Dhammapada’s first chapter. With a question and answer period at the end.

Please feel free to discuss this week’s podcast below.
