Message on Burma

October 8th 2007

Message
  
I extend my support and solidarity with the recent peaceful movement for democracy in Burma.  I fully support their call for freedom and democracy and take this opportunity to appeal to freedom-loving people all over the world to support such non-violent movements.  Moreover, I wish to convey my sincere appreciation and admiration to the large number of fellow Buddhists monks for advocating democracy and freedom in Burma. 
 
As a Buddhist monk, I am appealing to the members of the military regime who believe in Buddhism to act in accordance with the sacred dharma in the spirit of compassion and non-violence. 
 
I pray for the success of this peaceful movement and the early release of fellow Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi.
