"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "

I will stay in the present moment so in the present environment. If someone through a stone at you just catch it and put on the ground.
I can control only my action not others.

Everyone's quick to pounce on the muslims, but in the recent conflicts, The Americans and their allies have killed way way more muslims, than muslims have killed us, so were the ones collectively with the most blood on our hands, through supporting our governments policies. To think that puts us in a position to be making moral judgements about a confict in Myanmar, a country we know next to nothing about, purely on reading a few highly biased articles, doesn't seem that wise to me. For instance in this current bombing in Bodhgaya we haven't even established it isn't Hindu extremists, not muslims, or just plain crazy terrorists unaffiliated with any organized religion.
18 years ago I made one of the most important decisions of my life and entered a local Cambodian Buddhist Temple as a temple boy and, for only 3 weeks, an actual Therevada Buddhist monk. I am not a scholar, great meditator, or authority on Buddhism, but Buddhism is something I love from the Bottom of my heart. It has taught me sobriety, morality, peace, and very importantly that my suffering is optional, and doesn't have to run my life. I hope to give back what little I can to the Buddhist community, sincerely former monk John

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

Hi Manas
I know exactly what you are talking about.
Without going to details, just have faith on Buddha.
Just do anything to get out of this place (Samsara) .
Many will follow you if you do it!
You will save many more lives.
