Metta in Buddhism has long been associated with how a mother loves her only child and the sacrifice she would make for her child and that this feeling should be practiced until it's extended towards ALL beings.

The real question: is loving every being tolerating violence, rape or murder that the being is committing or actually using possible force to stop this destructive behavior?

No parent would tolerate such horrible behavior in their kids, in fact, parents too seeing their kids going out of line might use force to get some sense in to their kids before their child is arrested or killed by law authorities.

Similarly, the use of force is justified to defend the good and stop foolish people from committing any further acts leading to hellish states-- it is the ultimate act of compassion to deliver them from cancerous thoughts.

There are those on this forum who like quoting the Metta Sutta, but never having been a parent, don't know it's true meaning.

The use of force is clearly justified like a parent whose child has gone on the wrong path and the use of overwhelming force to stop further degeneration is the only option left.

I support Buddhists who are willing to use some tough love to get these Muslims in line and help show them the Dharma.

I'm a Buddhist in a Muslim majority nation,Malaysia.

Not having said enough,I'd like to inform you we have 3 types of traditional Buddhist traditions thriving, with Buddhist Societies existing, & a slowly growing number of Sangha training centres (ie. i. Sasanarakkha, ii.Vihara Buddha Gotama) growing number of meditation centres (i.e., i. Malaysian Buddhist Meditation Centre ii. Santisukharama)

It's not that bad,just that most of the perks would go to the majority, as in many other countries.

It goes back to shed some light on your bias judgement that ALL MUSLIMS are a threat.Perhaps,as much as those victims violence would like to pin point that ALL BUDDHISTS are violent.

Now,it's useless to talk about Metta Sutta but you start twisting the spirit of the sutta.Whatever that is discouraged in the sutta,you encourage.

Again,I question,where's Metta in the act to demolish NON BUDDHIST SHRINES in Dambulla, Sri Lanka? And where's the Metta when some Rakhines attacked any suspected Rohingya in the streets?

I always get replies that beats around the bush,without any Dhamma substance.

One thing you need to be aware of is that people are not allowed to build near ancient sites. As a result even part of the Buddhist vihara that fell within that line was has to be removed also. Even in Bodhgaya, certain Budddhist vihara and various business or homes were required to be demolished because they were built within the line of the protected ancient site.

This issue was disgusted on numerous occasion before, you need to do some research before blindly falling for onesided propaganda . For example:

"Without having pre conclusions of Sri Lanka, I ask intelligent readers to take a note following facts and then decide upon you yourself. At the outset I swear we Buddhists have no animosity towards Muslims and we tolerate every religion in Sri Lanka.

There is a court order to remove all the unauthorized structures from Anuradhapura Sacred City area (World Heritage city). The rule here is no new construction can be done in the UNESCO world heritage sites. That is why some of the new Buddhist structures were removed this year. The only exception was this new Muslim shrine. It is totally a lie that this structure was 300 years old. Everybody can see it is a new structure constructed in recent past.

Its boundaries are demarcated by the Archaeological Department of Sri Lanka. From the beginning of this year all the unauthorized structures were removed by the authorities. Even buildings constructed for Buddhist pilgrims to take rest and spend night were removed from limits enforced by the Archaeological Department. Some parts of the Buddhist Monks University in Anuradhapura were also removed. But this unauthorized so-called Muslim shrine did not obey this ruling.

Therefore, some Buddhist organizations complained about it to authorities. A Sri Lankan court gave a ruling to remove it. Archaeological Department advised Muslim clergy to remove this structure they themselves. Muslim clergy of this unauthorized structure did not heed to any of these warnings....

I am asking simple question from people who are ready to bash Sri Lanka in her every turn.

Will Muslims allow Buddhists to build a Buddhist temple in the heart of Mecca? It is same principle apply here. They have not only prohibited even a small construction related to other religions in their soils but also they have prohibited taking even a small Buddhist or any other religious statue into their country. TA good example of their intolerance is complete destruction of Bamyan Statues in Afghanistan.

But Buddhists will not behave like that. In fact Muslims can build their shrines in other areas in Sri Lanka. Buddhists will not obstruct such works. There are thousands of Muslim and other religious shrines everywhere in Sri Lanka. "

----------
" I just returned from a week's trip in Sri Lanka and can vouch for mush of what Dissanayake wrote. There are numerous Muslim (and Christian) shrines everywhere, even built at road junctions. Sri Lankans are very tolerant of other faiths, perhaps even too tolerant. I remember I was at a temple and in the midst of my personal worship, being interupted by the Muslim azan blared out from a nearby lounspeaker. "

----------

Many Muslim lack religious sensitivity when it comes to other people's religion and sacred places. For example, they even built a mosque right in front of Bodhgaya and blasted loud speakers everyday , disturbing people that are either meditating or carrying out their peaceful services there.

But do they allow anyone to build temple or churches in front of their grand mosque in Mecca ?

Have you wondered why is it that Buddhism is greatly suppressed in the vast numbers of Muslim countries but allowed to exist in Malaysia and Indonesia? Right now these countries are surrounded by Buddhist countries. However, they are trying to spread out right now. Muslims have fought self countrol in part of Philippines already . They are fighting other non-Muslim countries in Southeast Asia to gain more self control area. Don't be surprise if once they are allowed to succeed , that part of the world will become like the Middle East, where you hardly find any Non-muslim organization or worship places at all. In Indonesia they just shut down 9 Churches and 6 Temples in one week.

At the moment they are cleaning out non-Muslim countries in the Middle East ( with violences) and Africa ( with violence), as well as some countries in South East Asia, slowly eating up various parts of Europe ( through crooks and scandal). The big countries will be last.

* I wasn't refering to the WHOLE Sri lanka,presentlty I am refering to the silly case in Dambulla where a so-called chief monk(ey) called for the demolition of non-Buddhist places of worship.

Bear in mind we work within the boundries of Buddhist values.Do not compare it with what the rest of the world does.It's not worth the comparisson,especially when we want to highlight Dhammic values here.

Again,Buddhists have got no reservations when it comes to other religions. Let us live up to our values, not tit for tat kind of 'worldly' value. We try our level best to stand for Dhammic values.

There are Muslim villages surrouding Bodhgaya (if you have been there),hence the existance of mosque.Buddhists in Mecca?There never existed a need for grand viharas originally.Sri Lanka or any Buddhist country embassies can always arrange for private 'Buddhist sessions' for their nationals working there.

Are you saying that there are no churches and temples in front of Mecca just because there are no Buddhist and Christian villages around Mecca? Other religion are not even allowed to build churches and temple around Mecca. Those who convert to another religion are punishable by death in that country.

For you to simply retort " Again,Buddhists have got no reservations when it comes to other religions" is a form of tit or tat , besides it is baseless.

If you have time do your research before abusing our Bhikkhus with hate speech such as " monkey" and other abusive labels etc.. It's ironic that you are pushing your distorted assumption regarding what the Buddha taught and yet don't even follow basic precepts such as right speech or" stand for Dhammic values" forget about telling people what to do or not to do when it comes to complex teachings .

Buddha did not teach people to fight for enemies or perpetrators and ignore the plight of innocent people nor did he teach you to defend vicious perpetrators while ignoring innocent people. This way you are defending darkness and attacking the light when the Buddha taught people to defend justice. It is cruel to the innocent people to to look the other way while they are under persecution by vicious attackers. You need to fully read the Buddha's teaching before pushing an incomplete understanding on others.

People forget Buddhism is the middle way and not about extremist pacifism nor extremist violence. It is about wise judgement.

Buddhism is definately about RIGHT Intention. For the intent of peace, protection of the truly good and the Dhamma is vital.

Please do your homework,the situation in Bodhgaya is different from that in Mecca.Even if there are converts (in secret),they'd be wise enough to have their pujas in private.'Samma ditthi' & 'panna' you say?So here's how you apply it.

Baseless?Where in all our Nikayas was there a ban to mingle with non-Buddhists,or a ban to have non-Buddhist places of worship built on so-called Buddhist 'holyland'?There never was any holyland.The four sites of pilgrimage as mentioned in Mahaparinibbana Sutta is for the 'arousal of faith in the faithful,herein the important events of the Tathagata's life have taken place.' They are not sites binded by blind adherence to selfish man-made laws.

Did I brand all 'our bhikkhus' monkey?I was not aware of that.I referred to one particular bhikkhu and other bhikkhus who blindly 'aped' him if I may say,to call for demolision of non-Buddhist places of worship (mosques & kovil) around Dambulla as it is Buddhist 'holyland'(?)

So if you are abusing A single bhikkhu and not two bhikkhu , then who is it ?

You need to get your fact straight before abusing our bhikkhu which hate speech. There, the "s" was removed.

While you are at it why don't you go abuse the imams who destroyed countless churches and temples. They are the ones that did it for no reason. You are not going to do it are you. Then you are actually practicing some sort of double standard justice where you allow terrorists to be lawless and picking on ordinary people for the wrong reason. Do you think you are actually contributing anything positive here or just the opposite.

I am sure they would also support Devdatta's "religion". Actually Buddha gives us the perfect example of how to treat annoying aggressors which is comparable to Islam-- the pairing of aggressor Ajatshatru and the evil Devdatta.

Ajatshatru keeps attacking and had it been upto him had he won, Devdatta's religion would have been given primacy over Buddha.

The Buddhist King Pasenadi defeats him and confiscates his army. Buddha gives the king his full support and never gives any reason to doubt about what he is doing.

Pacifists are cramping Buddhist options to defeat aggressors who are forming evil religions.

A Buddhist need NEVER justify self defense or protecting other Dharma farers to ANYONE.

True metta means loving your self and cherishing the rare opportunity of a human birth, and the even rarer opportunity to have the merit to practice the Dharma.

All Dharma practitioners must ensure the Dharma and it's institutions are safe for future generations!

Bodhgaya is a special place in Buddhism because it was the place where Buddha became enlightened just as Mecca is special to Muslim. By the way , why is it that Buddhist have to do their worship in secret in Mecca? Don't you see something wrong with this picture? Are you okay with the way people of other religion are being treated in Mecca? Those that convert better move fast.

Of course there is no banning of places of worship from other religion in Bodhgaya. But since Muslim ban people of other religion from setting up religious place in Mecca, they should at least have the decency to not blast loud speakers to disturb other people's peaceful meditation. If they must blast loud speakers then don't open it right in front of Bodhgaya. Can't you see the double standard they are practicing . While they demand equal treatment from people of other religion, they turn around and treat people of other religion as some kind of low class and not giving them that much right at all. The ironic thing is that they will be the first to lecture you on democracy, human rights, or discrimination. What a joke, it is not their place to lecture anyone on compassion , human rights, or freedom . For them only they themselves deserve these things and not people of other religion. This kind of distorted practices should be ban from non- Muslim countries for their treatment of people from other religion in their countries.

The fanatical Muslim terrorists are alway targeting innocent civilians when they wage their war, but will immediately accuse people of war crimes when their civilians are being attacked. In that case, stop hiding among their civilians then they won't be in danger.

Why should the general population allow these Muslims to harass them. It is time to rise up !

If you take the time to browse through Mahasatipathana Sutta, check out the part on Ariya Saccani. You'll be inspired to come out with a better solution.

What's there to be bitter about? Do we have a tradition of blaring out our chants loudly?

My Hindu friend once told me : When people are not comfortable with our ritual worship, we should stop it. For,isn't our ritual worship sacred? When it induces negativity in others,the ritual is no longer sacred.

I salute her for her Dhammafull attitude. We,declaring ourselves followers of the 'Supreme Teacher'(Bhagava) must walk the true Dhammic path,rather than focusing on all misgivings which are not Buddhistic.

We do not open a temple right in front of other religion's most sacred places and " blaring out our chants loudly" .

Besides, I am talking about disturbing our practice of meditation. How is that inducing negativity in others?

Extreme UnDhammic attitude you're having.

What's this Dhamma for? Exactly for us who are living in this world, not in a world with controlled environment,which is impossible.

If this world is without such Dukkha,the whole load of Buddha Dhamma we're trying to practise here would mean nothing.

If only we would take time to dwell on the Lord's Supreme Wisdom in such teaching as collected in Dhammapada, verses 3-4, Yamaka Vagga:

'He abused me, he beat me, he defeated me, he robbed me,
in those who harbour such thoughts hatred will never cease.(verse 3)

'He abused me, he beat me, he defeated me, he robbed me,
in those who do not harbour such thoughts hatred will cease.(verse 4)

It's all in the mind.

If you continue sailing with all the defilements,of course,even the chirping of birds around Bodh Gaya would inavitably disturb you!

Now tell me, are you familiar with the Muslim's call of prayer. How long does it last?

What have you learnt in your Vipassana class???? Please read Mahasatipathana Sutta to help yourself. You are so bothered about outside phenomenon that you've forgotten in bhavana,you try to look within : the main object of your meditation.

It's odd that you are huffing and puffing the whole time about how the Bhikkhus are monkeys for involved in removing a mosque built in an illegal location ( while you don't even know the full story) and abusing Bhikkhus in Burma with hate speech ( again without knowing the true story).
How they did this and that, but when people tell you how indecent Muslims are, then you say it is un dharmic . If you had practice the above and not banging on your false accusation on others then people would'n't be telling you about the Muslims. Besides, nobody choose you to be a dharma teacher.

Now tell me, do they blast their loud speakers throughout the day or just once.
Besides, according to your logic if their rituals create unpleasantness in others then it is unholy , therefore they should abandon it. Why don't you say the same thing here, but only want Buddhist that they should abandon their practice if it disturb others. Can you see something wrong with your double standard and distorted logic.
Shouldn't you follow your own logic and go tell the Muslims to abandon that practice as you did to Buddhist. You are not going to are you. You're either a fool or a Muslim in disguise , and not a dharmic buddhist.
