Pray for the monks : what else can we from our western homes do to support those moving massive silent protest that have been daily repeated for weeks now.
‘We are marching for the people,’ one monk told the crowd, urging them not to chant political slogans and only to recite prayers of peace.
The eternal serenity of the buddhist princes of inner Kingdom of Heaven is now facing the outter world, the streets, the rain and the likely brutality of the military junta.
The fearless facing the mercyless.
The world is watching.
Pray for the monks !
