- Dear members of INEB,
At the outset, I would like to thank Brother Jonathan
Watts for information of the activities of Engaged
Buddhists. I came back from Bangkok yesterday after
spending one day in visiting various Buddhist places
there. Had I known that the office of INEB is located
in Bangkok, I would have certainely visited the
office. I came to know about it only today. About
engaged Buddhism, I read one article written by Sulak
Sivaraksha. Therein he has talked of Buddhism with
small b and not the Capital B. I think it is a
wonderful way of putting the teaching of our master
Buddha. I am impressed by his work for removing
poverty in the rural areas.
About me, I am from India and presently based in New
Delhi, I am 28. We have an E-group also,namely, the
Buddhist Circle. It comprises of youths mostly and
most of the members are committed. There is so much
to be done in India and the Dhamma is certainly
appealing the people, though the numerical strenght of
the adherents is less. We arrange various programmes
in New Delhi, Mumbai and Nagpur. We also meet in the
Universities. Personally, I am of the belief that
Buddhism is never socially disengaged.
I am also looking forward to participate in the
forthcoming conference of INEB.
Together we can do a lot!
With much Metta,
For a better Internet experience
