World peace

Post by Aemilius » Sat Mar 30, 2013 10:15 am

We should include the North Korean people in our daily dedications for world peace, for this purpose I read about north korean Juche ideology, I'd like to share this interesting topic http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Juche
For the happiness and peace of all peoples on Earth!

We should also include ourselves - the rest of the world - because we will suffer a lot too if a world war begins.

I don't mean to be cynical, but the Juche idea resembles buddhism, it stresses the subject or man, the allpowerful human being, everything comes from the subject, from the human being, -says the founder of Juche, Kim Jong Il. http://www1.korea-np.co.jp/pk/062nd_issue/98092410.htm
There is no incarnation in it, but the founder of Juche, Kim Jong Il, is considered a Perfect Human.

There are hundreds of peoples on Earth, not just one's own people, once again: peace and happiness for all the peoples!

Sure it does, especially under the influence of some serious psychedelics!!! :shrug: Juche is a materialist/nihilist social and political doctrine based on Marxist-Leninist ideology. It was devised by Kim Il Sung in order to justify his brutal dictatorial regime and turn himself into a secular god. It was used by Kim Il Sung, as an effective propaganda device, to remain in power even though he was basically responsible (due to his intransigence around the issues of self-sufficiency and zero reliance on foreign powers) for the deaths by starvation (and associated illnesses) of somewhere between 1-2.4 million North korean citizens during the mid 1990's.

Identical to Buddhism, I would say!

Not that the North Koreans do not deserve our sympathy and prayers, of course they do, but there is no need to look for similiarities where none really exist. Compassion is for eveybody/thing regardless of similarities and differences.

You are overlooking the historical development on this planet, what actually happened in 1800's and 1900's. People didn't start out with the intention of doing harm, on the contrary they had the best of intentions. Don't forget the actual history. It is illuminating to read about the kind of ideas and creative intentions that Kim Jong Il had, as an example of this.

Astus, I believe you're based in Budapest, whats going on? I just read an article in the paper where it claimed Hungary is no longer a democracy. Prime minister Viktor Orban, apparently backed by the EU has developed extreme right wing views and proudly claims his proximity to the Jobbik and its paramilitary militia, responsible for several racist murders of Romani people (gypsies) and heiress of the pro-Nazi Arrow Cross Party.
You may wish to comment.

There are 193 members in the UN. The lists of indigenous peoples and ethnic minorities on the four continents (five, six or seven continents, depending on the model) run in hundreds.
May there be peace and the cause of peace for all the peoples, nations and sovereign states.
May they be free of disturbances.
May they be free of dissatisfaction and its causes.
May they rejoice in the prosperity and success of other peoples, nations and sovereign states.
May they abide in great equanimity, without division into friends and enemies.

I rejoice in the merit and wisdom of all beings living on planet Earth, and of beings on other planets, in other solar systems.
I rejoice in the collections of merit and wisdom of ordinary beings and of aryas.
I rejoice in the practise of the noble eight fold path by ordinary beings and by aryas.
I rejoice in the practice of the path of paramitas, of the bodhisattvas on the five paths and ten bhumis.

I had a really great, the best idea, of where to create a particular post, and what to create, but in this situation my usually ideal memory failed me, and i don't remember exactly what it was.

but glancing at the forum, i cannot think of any other topic which is better suited to the buddha-dharma ideal,

although the only comment would be that it is about the universal aspect,

as opposed to the local, but the local and the universal work together as a duo.

peace to all beings, and to all the world(s). . .

may all beings be happy,
may all beings be healthy,
may all beings be at peace.

Peace occurs between heterogenous social groups and is chracterized by lack of conflict and freedom from the fear of violence. It is also understood as absence of hostility. (wikipedia)
