Trouble in Thailand continues; Who’s meditating now? November 6, 2007

Posted by Philip Ryan in Burma, Meditation, Tibet.

BURMA: Imprisoned leader Aung San Suu Kyi is set for talks with UN envoy Ibrahim Gambari. What will they talk about? She reportedly has some health problems. The junta will gladly let her leave for treatment, but getting back in might be a little trickier. The junta has declined the UN’s requests for three-way talks involving Suu Kyi.

THAILAND: Violence continues, largely unnoticed by the world, in Thailand’s tortured south.

TIBET: China, still miffed at Canadian PM Stephen Harper meeting with HHDL last week (and feeling like they’re getting nowhere with Bush on the same subject) has played the Quebec card: Meeting with the DL is the same as if the People’s Republic were to meet with Quebec separatists. China sent over some Tibetans on strings to show Canadians what real Tibetans are like, not phonies like the DL. Perry Garfinkel of the Huffington Post talked to the DL recently.

Who’s meditating now? Hollywood actress Halle Berry and Serbian tennis star Ana Ivanovic for two. And it can extend your life, says some doctor. So will anything that lowers your stress, except smoking and probably a few other things.
