A message from Bodhinyana Monastery

The Buddhist Channel, July 1, 2014

Dear Respected Venerables and Friends,

Warm greetings from Bodhinyana Monastery in Perth.

You may have heard of the recent banning of Ajahn Brahm's paper on gender equality at the recent United Nation Day of Vesak in Vietnam. The paper had been approved by the appointed committee, but was then banned about 36 hours before it was to be presented. The paper was on gender equality in Buddhism, which was directly related to the conference theme of the UN Development Goals.

A petition has recently been started to complain to the organisers about this unreasonable case of censorship.

To sign this petition please go to the following site:

Please pass this message or link on to whoever you think might be interested in signing.

Thank you for support.
