The extremist Buddhists, ably spurred on by unscrupulous hard-line Buddhist monks, have become totally out-of-control in Burma and Sri Lanka.

What is happening in Myanmar (Burma) is inexcusable. This new population control law, to hopefully curb the growth of the non-Buddhist minorities, is BEYOND a joke. But, alas it is very real.

Sri Lankan Buddhists, always ready to ape anything and everything bad from Burma, will no doubt try to pass a similar law.

How come there is NO Global OUTRAGE?

Talk about trampling all over BASIC human rights? We are talking about the right to reproduce.

This is wrong.

All Buddhists, around the World, should speak out against this.

Burma should face trade sanctions and boycotts — and so should Sri Lanka IF they too insist on trying to ape Burma.

I am NO longer a Buddhist BUT as a child I was inculcated with more Buddhism than most. Google (or check Amazon) with “Guruge Buddhism“. So I do know my Buddhism much, much better and more insightfully than most. So trust me on this. This is NOT what Buddhism is about. Buddhism, not a religion per se, is about compassion, MODERATION and tolerance. Just ask YOURSELF, if you are a Buddhist, “what would Buddha say?”

Just invoke Google Search in the U.S. to see it live.


Google has NEVER done a Google Doodle for Memorial Day!

I guess it has to do with some kind of policy that they eschew anything associated with war and conflict.
I can understand and appreciate that to an extent.
But, I think Memorial Day transcends war though by definition it is holiday honoring U.S. war dead in all conflicts.


Google, however, does Google Doodles for Veteran’s Day
the difference being that that is a day to honor all those that have served (or are serving) with no connection to war.
