Standing Up to Injustice

Do not use the Buddhist community for personal gain or profit, or transform your community into a political party. A religious community, however, should take a clear stand against oppression and injustice and should strive to change the situation without engaging in partisan conflicts.

--The Tenth Precept of the Buddhist Order of Interbeing, from the book Interbeing, by Thich Nhat Hanh
