The Australian Sangha Association's Statement on Myanmar
Issued in Canberra, Sunday 30 September 2007
The Australian Sangha Association (ASA) declares its total support and offers its sympathetic blessings to all respected Sangha and members of the public in Myanmar who are risking their life and devoting their peaceful actions for justice, freedom, democracy and prosperity in their country.
We sincerely request that the military government of Myanmar to cease immediately its brutal and violent repression of Myanmar protesters and to start open dialogue for re-establishing Myanmar as a peaceful and respectable nation where all citizens can share an equal right to govern and manage their nation.
We, the Buddhist Sangha from Australia, express our admiration, respect and understanding toward all Buddhist Sangha in Myanmar for their courage, their noble stand, and their positive actions based on the ancient principle of harmlessness for the benefits of all. Your compassion and wisdom is an inspiration to us all around the world.
If there is anything we can do for assisting you to achieve your noble goals, the Association will try to the best of our ability.
