In the last episode we started to learn the story of a very unfortunate family who were terrorized by a yakkha who kept eating their babies. That would have been horrible, wouldn’t it. That family definitely would have wanted to conquer the yakha. Do you know that word, conquer? When we conquer someone, it can mean we have a battle or fight with them and we win the fight. Usually we talk about conquering an enemies army, but we can use it for people to. But this family didn’t have any power to conquer the yakkha, did they. So their only hope was to go to the Supreme Buddha for help. Today we will learn what happened when they went to see the Buddha. Dhammapada Verse Na hi verena verāni, sammantīdha kudācanaṃ; Averena ca sammanti, esa dhammo sanantano. 5. Hatred never ends through hatred; by non-hatred alone does it end. This is an eternal law in this world. Read the whole chapter on SuttaFriends.org. Contents 5:57 Sermon 19:28 Metta Bhavana: Loving Kindness Meditatio
