Rescuing from the Hell-Realms in Southeast Asia

Socially engaged Buddhism is about being aware of the suffering that happens to to people outside your doorstep without discrimination so you can cultivate true unbiased compassion for all beings.

When people talk about genocide, they nearly always talk about Darfur or Rwanda.  They hardly ever talk about Myanmar.

In Myanmar, there are over one-hundred ethnic minority groups.  These people for fifty years have been victims of rape, torture, random shootings, abductions and forced labor.  Over 3,500 villages have been burned down completely.  It is time for the American people to take a stand in Myanmar.
