If people are so blinded that they are able to deliberately cause pain to others, kill them, how can we reach the mind of these people? From a Zen perspective, can we do anything to make them see that they are separated from life? Meditating and trying to be open minded seem not to be far reaching enough.

Sometimes others do good and I do bad. I am no saint, I am no warrior. We are all together learning human being." If we would like to create a world where we can help each other, we cannot let ourselves become confused by phenomena. "Letting go of greed, hate and anger, right away we are part of a peaceful world." This is how we can continue to learn and develop.
