Burmese monks protested …
now thousands of Buddhists in South Korea are protesting against religious discrimination.
“Police estimated that 60,000 people, including 7,000 monks, gathered in front of the capital Seoul’s City Hall.”
The article regarding the South Korean’s rally can be found here.
There is nothing un-Buddhist about demonstrating. Buddha taught that we should do whatever is practical to help correct a situation. Demonstration is a practical method to get your voice heard.
We will remain calm in our hearts and protest with one compassionate voice for religious freedom, for religious tolerance, and for the remaining of pure Buddhadharma in this world.
Dalai Lama – please remove the ban against Dorje Shugden practice!
