Report from the KnowingBuddha group:
Success, no Neglect
Since our organization, Knowing Buddha has sent many letters including emails to pressure 21st Living Art who makes the Buddha arm chair and the Buddha head chair and we also sent the letters to the furniture association, Design association, Chamber of commerce and Thai embassy including Minister of Foreign affair to ask help to stop making such an unacceptable chair including giving the information how to properly act to Buddha image.
Since we have seriously continued working on this case. Soon we got a good response from the Minister of Foreign affair that the 21st Living Art had sent the letter of apology that they were sorry that they had upset a lot of Buddhists and disrespected the Buddha and they also promised that they wouldn’t make these products anymore.
Thanks the Minister of Foreign Affair for seriously working for us and thanks everyone for great support.
And this is a great success of us, Buddhists who never neglect what should be corrected.
