redsnapper BS: Should we care about Burmese? (129* d) RE: BS: Should we care about Burmese? 01 Oct 07


Being a Buddhist myself stigweard, I'd go even further. In Buddhism there is no God at all. Nor, strictly speaking, is it a religion although usually regarded as such (both in the East and West)... it is more a way of living and practicing one's life. Your description of the robes and shaved heads is spot on for the monks although, of course, most lay Buddhists do not adopt these practices. Also the esteem in which the monks are held in many Eastern societies.

This is why I was asking for clarification as I could not relate the questions being asked to the situation in Burma. To me, the monks actions are the passive resistance I would have expected.
