"She wanted to LIVE" R.I.P. "Braveheart"

Postby Annapurna » Sat Dec 29, 2012 7:38 pm

Please light a candle for the young woman who was gang-raped and DESTROYED by 6 men, injuring her so badly, that despite of her will and wish to survive and help bring them to justice, her body gave up-- :weep:

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

He turns his mind away from those phenomena, and having done so, inclines his mind to the property of deathlessness: 'This is peace, this is exquisite — the resolution of all fabrications; the relinquishment of all acquisitions; the ending of craving; dispassion; cessation; Unbinding.'

Thank you so much guys.

Dear all, you showed so much compassion for the fired, hot dentist assistant, now, this is here is so much worse, and there are so few replies. Very strange. Why is that? :thinking:

I hope you will sign the petition Marie posted!

god.help.

am so heartbrocken.

i couldn't get her out of my mind,ended up crying last night in bed..i tried to close my eyes but all i got was painful images.

I kept the eight precepts,listen to the dhamma all day,meditated and dedicate my merits for her and sent her metta.Who knows she might have been a departed relative in a not too distant life.

my poor child.my god.i wish she never had to go through that.god.i wish no woman had to go through that.god.help us. :candle:

Yana, I cried for her as well, and was haunted by images...

Mawkish, it is truly beyond words, I feel the same way. ---

Signed.

Tragic as this death is - India (and others) has a much larger problem - Gendercide.


‘Amartya Sen, the Nobel Prize winning economist said in 1990, that more than 100 million women are missing. ‘In India, China and some other countries in the world , girls are killed, aborted & abandoned because they are girls. The United Nations estimates as many as 200 million girls are missing in the world today because of gendercide. 50 million missing campaign fighting gendercide in India. Gendercide is war on women.

Amithabh Bachchan Pays Poetic Tribute to Gang-Rape Victim


"With the passage of time, the candles shall burn out and lose their flame...

The flowers offered with devotion, shall in the absence of water, get dry and weathered out...

The voices of protest both vocal and silent, shall lose their strength...

But the 'fearless' ( nirbhayata ) fire that has been ignited, shall rekindle the flames in our hearts...

The waterless dry and weathered flowers, shall be brought to life drenched by the tears in our eyes...

With a burning throat the soul of 'Damini' and 'Amaanat', shall be voiced in the entire universe...

That I am the Mother, sister and daughter of my Bharat...

Respect and dignity are my birthright possessions ..

Bharat the country is my Mother...

Forget about me, become at least the recognised worthy face of your Mother..!!"

Thank you, all, Kusala, this is very touching and Cooran, this reality is truly sad...no words...

Here is an update...I keep thinking her path is a lightful path, like the path of a Bodhisattva, who changes the world with a personal sacrifice...I wonder if you know what I am trying to say...?

I had signed it some days ago via causes on facebook.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

I shared the link on facebook.

I had received posts from friends in India, prior to this, all shocked and crushed and asking to sign. Male and female.

I am VRERY happy to see so much resonance, thank you all for spreading.

According to the last link, she was planning her wedding in February.

Gang rape seems to be a pastime in India, called "Eve-teasing", and recently a 17 year old girl was gangraped and committed suicide after police told her she should try and reach a settlement with the rapists herself!

This is outrageous and needs to be openly discredited, so people can force changes!

No wonder gang rape is a pasttime for some fools there, if it hardly ever has any painful consequences!
