Do good and avoid evil !!! What do we do when evil do not want to avoid us ??? with metta.
Evils in Buddhist view are generated through our actions based unwholesome states of our mind. In the advice, "Avoid doing evil" means to avoid doing such actions which are also harmful to oneself and others. When we understand that unwholesome actions bring us suffering and evils, then we can purposely avoid doing them. In a very basic sense, we can avoid or injuring others, stealing, ual misconduct and lying. It is not that evil comes to us but we choose to do evil. We can be away from them. We only need a little bit of wisdom and mindfulness. with metta Bhante Pemaratana 2009-11-06 20:11:40#1
