Mumbai

Postby Dhammabodhi » Thu Nov 26, 2009 12:20 am

Hi all,

Just wanted to remind everyone that today is the 1 year anniversary of the horrific Mumbai attacks. May those who suffered and are still suffering be able to find peace, and may those who carried out the attacks have better mind-states in future rebirths.

Finally, as an Indian, I pray that those who masterminded the attacks give up the path of violence and be dealt with law.

P.S: Sorry to spoil the party for thanksgiving!
