Still there is lust for power, or desire to dominate are barely restrained by fear the fear of man's own vastly improved instruments of destruction. Fear, however is not a very reliable brake on man's impulses and it constantly poisons the atmosphere by creating a feeling of instruction which again fan the fires of hate. The wrath of nature experiences in recent times leaves us bewildered and helpless. The phenomenon is not new. The magnitude has increased. From where to receive the remedy? How is it to be obtained? One cannot help and wonder at the foresight and wisdom of the Buddha that inspired the world more than 2500 years ago, which are so relevant in today's time. Ethics and values play the vital role in the present situation of globalization. The concern is an outcome of growing violence, fissiparous tendencies, ethnic, linguistic and religious conflicts the world. A sense of mutual distrust and fear of the other is visible everywhere. Never before, these apprehensions existed in such awesome proportions. Man still bungle only with the symptoms of their malady, remaining blind to the source of the illness which is no other than the three strong Roots of Everything Evil (akuala mula) pointed out by the Buddha- Greed (lobha), hatred (dveua) and delusion (moha). Buddha offer a great variety of methods of metal training and subjects of meditation suited to the various individual needs, temperaments and capacities. Yet all these method ultimately converge in the "Way of Mindfulness" called by the master himself "the only Way". This book will focus on the Buddha's prescription of "Meditation" which is the foundation for the Ethical values to strengthen one's Culture.
