Express News Service, Dec 12, 2004

New Delhi, India -- ?It is very easy to understand those who agree with you, but not so easy to have a dialogue with those who do not. This is why the stories from the life of Buddha are an important reminder for today?s world leaders, including those combating terrorism,?? said Prof. Satish Kumar, traveller and writer on Buddhism, today evening.

Kumar was delivering a talk on his latest book, Buddha and the Terrorist, at the IHC. Also present was Dr Karan Singh.

The book, based on Buddha?s encounter with the robber Angulimaal - who wore a garland he made from his victims fingers. Kumar spoke on how Buddha ultimately overcame this terror and used the tale as a modern fable for those governments battling terrorists.
