BUDDHADHARMA: THE PRACTITIONER’S QUARTERLY 31 Crisis in Myanmar Randy Rosenthal THE SCRIPTURES OF JUDAISM, Christian- ity, Hinduism, and Islam condone, justify, and even sometimes encourage the use of violence. In Buddhist texts, it’s just the opposite. Chap- ter 10 of the Dhammapada reads: “All tremble before violence. All fear death. Having done the same yourself, you should neither harm nor kill.” Another verse reads: “In this world hostilities are never appeased by hostility. But by the absence of hostility are they appeased.
