In Buddhist society said that Buddhism has been knowns as the most peaceful religion among world religions. There is no any war in history of the world shows that Buddhists have not cause any conflict with the name of Buddhism since of Buddhism had founded by Gotama Buddha who always taught non-violence and compassion to his follower and attended or disciples. Buddha expressed the Paca Sla, five precepts for lay peoples which will prove beneficial for them to live peaceful, harmonious life in society and with an amicable way. The basic one for everybody is the Five Precepts, providing the foundation for societal relationships for good cooperation and not taking advantage of others, in order to maintain peace and happiness for the society. Therefore, five precepts is not only the foundation to peace for the individual but also for public society. The best way of practicing loving-kindness is the basic teaching in Buddhism.
