The ongoing war has left many Buddhists across the empire despondant and disgusted. Stories of devastating marches, bloody massacres, and scorched villages reach the people's ears daily. Buddhism preaches a doctrine of non-violence, and this conflict goes against the very fabric of Buddhist teachings. The people's discontent could become a problem. What will you do?
The people are right; this war is a travesty to the Buddhist faith. We must promise to end it soon.
The people must understand we only wage this war to protect the Buddhist way of life.
Perhaps the Buddhist way of life is incompatible with this world. Even if it causes unrest, the question should be raised.
No religion is compatible with this world of conflict.
