Tolerance as a Hindu Value


Bodhinatha began by speaking of the troubles in the world today, in the aftermath of 9/11. At the core of the problem is hatred, and we need to counter all the hatred by teaching tolerance and acceptance, two deeply ingrained Hindu values. Hatred is taught; people are not born with hatred in their hearts. Tolerance is taught most effectively at home, and also in the temple and community center.

Performing daily sadhana, keeping good company, pilgrimaging to holy places, seeing to others' needs--these evoke the higher energies, direct the mind to useful thoughts and avoid the creation of troublesome new karmas.
