  1. Hello, I thought you might like to know about this: Burma is ruled by one of the most brutal military dictatorships in the world. For decades the Burmese regime has fought off pressure--imprisoning elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi and democracy activists, wiping out thousands of villages in the provinces, bringing miseries from forced labour to refugee camps. But last Tuesday Buddhist monks and nuns, revered in Burma, began marching and chanting prayers. The protests spreadà¢-â€Ânow they're growing by tens of thousands every day, as ordinary people, even celebrities and comedians join in. http://www.avaaz.org/en/stand_with_burma/t...?CLICK_TF_TRACK Peaceful protesters numbered 20,000 on Saturday, 30,000 on Sunday, 100,000 today. This week, they could win a new life for their country. In the past, Burma's military rulers have massacred the demonstrators and crushed democracy. This time it can be differentà¢-â€Âbut only if the world stands with the Burmese. Global leaders are gathering now in New York for the annual United Nations summit. In speeches and press interviews, we need them to show Burma's military junta how grave the consequences will be if they crush the protesters with violence this time. Click below urgently to sign the emergency petition supporting the peaceful protests in Burma, it'll be delivered to UN Security Council members and the UN press corps all week: http://www.avaaz.org/en/stand_with_burma/t...?CLICK_TF_TRACK Thanks!
  2. The Belgian government has asked the Dalai Lama to cancel a long-planned visit to Brussels this week in response to pressure from Beijing, which opposes foreign trips by the exiled Tibetan leader. The Belgian request is linked to the upcoming visit of a Belgian trade delegation to China, led by Crown Prince Philipe. The cancellation of the visit also comes on the eve of the EU-China human rights dialogue on May 15-16 in Berlin. The Dalai Lama was due to have visited Brussels to meet with European Parliamentarians and attend a conference of NGOs supporting Tibet but has agreed to cancel the visit after intense pressure from the Belgium government. The following is an excerpt from the Tibetan Government in Exile's press statement in response to the announcement: The Chinese government's persistent attempts to exert pressure on small nations to restrict the movement of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is a case of outright bullying, gross interference in the internal affairs of a sovereign state, setting an unfortunate trend in international diplomacy and undermines the efforts that have been made to create a conducive atmosphere for a just and speedy resolution of the issue of Tibet.

  3. How does Buddhism look on eating egg? Is that also killing? What are the karmic effects of that?
