‘Free Burma’ Peace March: Indian Monks reach Chaityabhoomi,Mumbai

09Oct07

They are in absolute peace, they are silent, they are careful and they walk. People looking them feel inspired and confident. These are Buddhist Monks leading a peace March in s busy megalopolis Mumbai; protesting against the bloody rule of Junta in Burma, inviting democratic support to democratic struggle in Burma. The Peace March followed by many Indian monks towards ‘Chaityabhoomi’ where last remains of Dr Ambedkar, father of Indian Constitution are kept. This place is located in Central part of Mumbai, Dadar ; turning out to be source of inspiration for most of the Indians.

This instance reverberates crucial unity in Buddhist World trggered on a subtle call from suffering brethren in Burma. More importantly when the erosion of democratic values takes place, instead of resorting to violence, Monks have shown courage to resort to only peaceful means(not even to non-constitutional means like Satyagraha). Such models are seen everywhere be it Cambodia or be it Taiwan or be it recent case of Burma.

Leanings: Human values are more important than political ideologies or religious injunctions.
