For the perusal of the Sangha, an interesting article (at least I think so) from the New York Times here on "The Futility of Vengeance":
I think this paragraph near the end is intriguing: "Interestingly, people who are the least likely to seek vengeance tend to believe those who wronged them will ultimately get their comeuppance — in this or the afterlife. They let some higher power or fate be the final arbiter or avenger, as it were. It could be framed as forgiveness, letting it go or giving antagonists enough rope to hang themselves."
Are we Buddhists less likely to exact vengeance on an evildoer because we are nice people? Just letting go? Or are we giving the person just enough rope?
