Related imageIf a man who is unfit, incompetent, immoral, improper, unable, and unworthy of leadership, has enthroned himself as a ruler with great authority, he is subject to punishment by the people, because, being unfit and unworthy, he has placed himself unrighteously in the seat of sovereignty.

The ruler, like others who violate and transgress moral codes and basic social rules of humankind, is equally subject to punishment. The ruler who conducts himself as a robber of the public is to be especially condemned.

Arya Nagasena, Milinda Panha

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
