World peace will happen if we start to tame our own mind.

We are talking about world peace nowadays.
Yet, we created more weapons and wars in the same time.
Human is the main reason that cause world problem and not peace. The main reason is connected to our craving and greedy for name, fame and power.
There are Five Preceptsin in Buddhism
Killing, stealing, accusation, sexual misconduct and intoxification
The Five Precepts:
1. Panatipata veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from destroying living creatures.
2. Adinnadana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from taking that which is not given.
3. Kamesu micchacara veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from sexual misconduct.
4. Musavada veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from incorrect speech.
5. Suramerayamajja pamadatthana veramani sikkhapadam samadiyami
I undertake the precept to refrain from intoxicating drinks and drugs which lead to carelessness.

However, the worst intoxicating is the mind intoxicating which filled with greed, hatred, ego clinging that lead to negative emotions that caused tremendous disasters not only human, society and also all sentient beings.
Therefore, the practice of 5 precepts must be followed : not to do harm and always stay in sharp awake mind that away from mind intoxicating. World peace will happen if we start to tame our own mind.
