Buddhist Approach: The Causes of Social Conflict and its Solution

Phyu Mar Lwin

Abstract


The present world faces conflicts, catastrophes, worries and anxieties all over the place. The risk of economic, environmental, geopolitical, social and technological problems are high everywhere. In society, different people may have different opinions towards the same problem. Actually, individual problems are gradually becoming a common issue in our community. Naturally, humans are emotional, self-interested and subjective beings; thus, man-made catastrophes ruin our world. Nevertheless, any crisis that humanity encounters originates from our mind. A hateful mind really causes argument and conflict. Everyone wants to live without hatred; everyone desires happiness – but first of all, we must reduce hate from our mind.
