Solving Terrorism


TerrorismQuestion to Radhanath Swami : How could we help solve the problem of terrorism on an individual level?


Answer by Radhanath Swami:  Terrorism is born of ego. Strife and friction are caused when we understand only the letter of the religious law but ignore the spirit behind it. Unity and brotherhood of mankind can happen when we transcend the external differences and focus on the spiritual essence of all great traditions. The essence of every religion is sincerity in cleansing our own hearts, and cultivating humility by honouring every living entity as a child of God. We must educate the youth about these universal principles which teach us to love God and love every living being as a child of God. God is one and is known by many different names. If we  understand and internalize this reality we develop respect for every religious path.
