Dasavidha-rājadhamma

Dasavidha-rājadhamma ("tenfold virtue of the ruler") is a Buddhist teaching outlining the duties which rulers of people, organisations, companies, offices, countries and other institutions are obligated to uphold.

Revolution has a place in deposing a ruler who does not embody the dasrājadhamma, but not a place within a revolutionary political philosophy which espouses violence and bloodshed. ~ Bhikkhu Buddhadasa
