Greetings and Metta to all,
My apologies to any that I may offend if I am not skillful in what I say; but seriously I read this and similar threads and I see little knowledge, understanding or metta.
All events occur in a context and not understanding that context will lead to misconceptions, there is almost no understanding of Myanmar, the peoples and their history that lead up to the repulsive events in Burma and have involved those wearing saffron !http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Timeline_o ... se_history
What does that prove – well for a start that Buddha was right about impermanence. Secondly, that Myanmar is a lot more complicated than rice paddies, pagodas and peaceful coexistence even within the Buddhist communities.http://www.opensocietyfoundations.org/v ... chin-statehttp://endgenocide.org/conflict-areas/burma/http://www.loonwatch.com/2013/03/buddhi ... -in-burma/
to quote from the article a Muslim said “We don’t feel safe and we have now moved inside a monastery,”
This article I found most interesting when I reflected on what it has to say and the teachings of Buddha. http://blogs.tribune.com.pk/story/12825 ... t-fingers/
