Looks wonderful!
Like other religions, Buddhism also has a concept of holy war. Ignorant people use such ideas to justify physical violence, intimidation, denial of basic human rights, and the oppression of others. However, there is only one holy war that deserves the name, and that is the struggle to be waged by each individual to remove his or her own craving and ignorance. No other war, crusade, or campaign is worthy of the appellation “holy.”
Few are those who have gone to the other shore; many are those who run about on this side. Dhammapada 85

I downloaded the free pdf from your website and will read it. Thank you for sharing your Dhamma writing here, Bhante Pesala.

"A few days ago, a person came to see me saying, “Oh! Luang Poh. I was so glad I couldn’t sleep last night. The Buddha came. Very beautiful!” So, I graded him 60% mark of being nut. Plenty of them come here. If a person is about 60% half-crazy, he cannot practise meditation."

- Luang Phor Jaran (Phra Rajsuddhiñanamangala), "Very Difficult to Do Good", 26/10/1994
