Home Asia Pacific South East Asia Myanmar Myanmar Protest Global Support
Statement of Support from Bhavana House, Israel
by Dr. Itamar Bashan & Dr. Thor Gonen, Tel Aviv, Israel, The Buddhist Channel, Sept 30, 2007
We, practitioners of the Buddha-Dhamma at Bhavana House in Israel, feel deep sorrow and strong sense of brotherhood with the people of Burma in their brave and peaceful struggle against the military regime.
We strongly protest against the harsh and brutal measures taken by the Burmese military on the monks, nuns and innocent lay people protesting against years of oppression.
We urge the soldiers to remember the first precept every Burmese knows: PANATIPATA VERAMANI SIKKHA-PADAM SAMADIYAMI - I undertake to observe the precept to abstain from taking the life of living beings
May all beings be free.
