In Buddhism, monks are very much revered to, as they are disciples of Lord Buddha, who teaches us the universal loving kindness, wisdom, peace and compassion through the Dhamma. We are shocked to see how the Buddhist monks were treated. We appeal strongly to the Myanmar Government to stop harming the monks and stop raiding the Buddhist monasteries, which are sacred and valuable assets of Myanmar.
We also appeal to the Myanmar Government to avoid using forces and violence in solving the current situation in Myanmar and negotiate peacefully instead.
Your kind attention on this urgent and serious matter is very much appreciated.
May the people of Myanmar find the peaceful solution towards the current issues.
May peace prevail in Myanmar and in allparts of the world.
With loving kindness,
Pdt. Dr. R. Surya Widya
President of MAGABUDHI
President of PATRIA
