The Dalai Lama and Gandhi November 13, 2007

Posted by Philip Ryan in Burma, Dalai Lama.

BURMA: As Paulo Sergio Pinheiro visits Burma on behalf of the UN, a monk and a female activist were arrested in connection with the September protests. Human Rights Watch has called for a ban of all Burmese gems and jade, which together account for more than 10% of the junta’s revenue.

DALAI LAMA: Speaking at the Satyagraha Conference in India, the Dalai Lama says he met Gandhi, not in this lifetime, but in a dream. (Satyagraha is the practice of nonviolent resistance.) His Holiness will also meet with Burmese activists in Japan (in English this time.)

And here’s a look at Buddhism and noise pollution.
