Over at the DharmaFolk blog, the author recites the troubles in Burma between the Arakanese Buddhists and the Rohingya Muslim community. There has been violence. However the post appeals to Aung San Suu Kyi to speak out to end all suffering in Burma. The Taliban once again rears it head by saying that they will avenge the blood of the Rohingya.
The post reflects the values embraced by the Dali Lama during his speech Saturday at Vermont’s Middlebury College. He spoke of the need for nonviolence and a set of moral secular values that could be embraced by everybody. See CRAZY JOE SCHMIDT’s The Dali Lama Takes Vermont post.
