Correcting or mitigating conflicts that arise should take part in solving problems. This is because there is a balance in all dimensions, including the rule of law, human rights, rights and freedoms, ethics, and equality, as well as the feelings of all stakeholders. However, the Buddhist conflict management needs to begin as follows; (1) Analysis of the root cause of the conflict arising from (a) Tạṇh̄ā (Passion), (b) Māna (Ego), and (c) Thit̩ṭ̄hi (Viewpoint). (2) Two conflict analyzes are (a) internal conflict, and (b) external conflict. (3) Guidelines for the application of Buddhist leadership principles to manage conflicts; (a) Conflicts of information must not be misleading information that would create ambiguity. (b) Conflicts of interest must be managed to allocate the interests of the parties to a balance. (c) Relationship conflicts have to build on the empathy of the conflict partner by virtue of Buddhist principles, namely Sangkhahawatthu 4 (virtues making for group integration and leadership) and Saraniyadhamma 6 (virtues for a fraternal living). (d) Structural conflicts need to improve the political structure in line with lifestyle, reduce social inequality. And (e) Values or values conflicts must create appropriate values in society as a whole.
