Growing Up Without Prejudice - Publisher Desk

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads his editorial from the April/May/June 2016 edition of Hinduism Today magazine. "Conflict and violence have their roots in hatred learned during youth. By teaching children tolerance, we create a more peaceful future." In order to build a peaceful world and society, we must refine our character qualities and practice tolerance, openness, respect for other religions and beliefs, show appreciation, seek forgiveness and forgive, atone for misdeeds and teach youngsters to develop these qualities. Hinduism does not identify good and bad people; rather, we identify young souls who would learn from their actions and seek to guide and inspire them to fulfil their duties. The end result would be a peaceful society.
