AN ETERNAL LAW

Bill Le Page

 
Or the beautiful story of the Buddha settling a dispute between His lovers. Each side considered they were right in their stance and disputed accordingly, refusing to "give in and give up," just as Meher Baba would exhort His lovers to do in this advent.

The Buddha counselled each party that they should "stand in awe of divisions, and for the sake of harmony accept that which each was accused of and come together again." The Buddha said, "Not by hatred is hatred appeased: hatred is appeased by nonhatred; this is an eternal law."
