Fwd: Faye stands with the Burmese people!
- Dear Friends:
Please sign the petitian to release suffering of Burmese people.
Subject: stand with the Burmese people!
Hi, have you heard about the crisis in Burma?
Burma is ruled by one of the worst military dictatorships in the world. This week Buddhist monks and nuns began marching and chanting prayers to call for democracy. The protests spread and hundreds of thousands of Burmese people joined in -- they've been brutally attacked by the military regime, but still the protests are spreading.
I just signed a petition calling on Burma's powerful ally China and the UN security council to step in and pressure Burma's rulers to stop the killing. The petition has exploded to over 200,000 signatures in a few days and is being advertised in newspapers around the world, delivered to the UN secretary general, and broadcast to the Burmese people by radio. We're trying to get to 1 million signatures this week, please sign below and tell everyone!
Thank you for your help!

- Dear friends,
as we watch with sunken hearts the brutality faced by the Burmese
monks and people, let us express our solidarity with Myanmar for
democracy and freedom. At the same time, let us also remember the
contributions our Burmese friends-in-dhamma have made to the
international Buddhist community.
Many Theravada monks, nuns and laity have been trained in Burmese
meditation techniques, most notably the styles of Pha Auk Sayadaw,
Mahasi Sayadaw and S. N. Goenka.
Two of the six known Buddhist Councils were held in Myanmar. The Fifth
Council was held in Mandalay, and the Sixth Council in Yangon (Rangoon).
Everyone is welcome to add to the list.
May the blessings of the triple-gem be with the Burmese people.

vipassana alive when it was more or less forgotten in
Ceylon, and without the reciprocal contacts between
those two countries, I don't know if Theravada
Buddhism would have survived until today.

Swedish born, but studied in Burma before the coup
d'état in 1962. I myself got an opportunity to make a
short visit to Rangoon in January 1980, so part of my
heart is still there; it's a country not easy to
I think the important thing now is to try to keep the
information flow open. That seems to be what's new
this time - a "holy alliance" between bhikkhus and
