What is a good philosophical book on the topic of evil in Buddhism?
Here is an example of usage in context:
Protection Through Satipatthana (Access to Insight: Readings in Theravada Buddhism)
"Protecting oneself, one protects others" — the truth of this statement begins at a very simple and practical level. ... Moral self-protection will safeguard others, individuals and society, against our own unrestrained passions and selfish impulses. If we permit the "three roots" of evil — greed, hate and delusion — to take a firm hold in our hearts, then their outgrowths will spread far and wide like a jungle creeper, suffocating much healthy and noble growth all around. But if we protect ourselves against these three roots, our fellow beings too will be safe.
