Can we change this shocking future?

We can change above mentioned future, using noble path of the Buddha. For that rulers have do a big part. The Buddha has given lot of advices for rulers to build a prosperous state. Cakkavatti Sihanada Sutta, Lakkhana Sutta, Maha Sudassana Sutta in the Diga Nikaya and Bala Pandita Sutta in the Majjhima Nikaya have noble advices for rulers. First the ruler must have good morality. He should be abstaining from killing, thrifting, sexual misconducting, saying false and using alcohol. Further he should be refrain from violence, hatred, cruelty and immorality. A ruler should follow non-violence. He should strengthen the economy of the country. Then improve agriculture, rural development, provide financial support to entrepreneurs and business are his duties. He should protect the peace.

There are Ten Royal Virtues for a ruler. He should have liberality and generosity. He should be a high moral character. He would be able to making sacrifices if they are for the betterment of the people. He should be honest and integrate. He should have kindness or gentleness. He would be restraint of senses and austerity in habit. He should be non-violence person. He should have patience and tolerance. He should be able to non-opposition and non-enmity.

These are only several advises from the Buddha. There are many advises for rulers in the Pali Canon. It is worth to if a governor can apply these advises to make a holy state. When the ruler as the leader put the correct step towards the right direction, his followers come with he. Then ordinary citizens also follow them. If the ruler has good morality, then public improve their morality. Then their country would go to the prosperity. That’s how we can prevent such shocking happenings in the future.
