May those miners find enought to lead a future peaceful and happy life and may they find also the possibility to get in touch with the teachings of the Buddha.
May those in love with relictes of the Buddha feel not hurt and may they understand the cause of suffering even and especial in such moments and develople karuna while seeing them selfs and others being nit different form each other and detachment as well.

Where ever is no birth, there is no aging, distructing, sickness, fighting and death. Let natural things not cause another birth.
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_
