Killing is always wrong Mahayana:
if motivated to save lives then killing can be accepted Must be unselfish in actions-not killing for own gain Have to accept bad Karma Buddhist countries have armies for defence Better to be killed then kill Violence harms all-including perpetrator The Buddha taught his followers to
live their life following 5 precpts "What the monks said in the letters they left before burning themselves aimed only at alarming, at moving the hearts of the oppressors, and at calling the attention of the world to the suffering endured then by the Vietnamese," he wrote. "To burn oneself by fire is to prove that what one is saying is of the utmost importance. ... The monk who burns himself has lost neither courage nor hope; nor does he desire nonexistence. ... He does not think that he is destroying himself; he believes in the good fruition of his act of self-sacrifice for the sake of others" 343 Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.
Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without.
You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.
