"May we be free of torture, may there be peace in hearts and minds as our kindness spreads around the world. - The chant of Buddhist monks in protest in Myanmar
The power of the people is no small thing. My heart is heavy knowing what these brave and remarkable people are enduring right now. I stand united with them in spirit. Their voices are my voice. Their pleas are my own.
May peace and humanity prevail
I wanted to add that years ago I had the privilege to meet Bhante Walpola Piyananda, a Buddhist monk, at an event I did here in LA. He was so kind and generous and I had a really lovely and meaningful conversation with him. He gave me a copy of his book, Saffron Days in L.A., and signed it "To Kathy, with blessings." I just finally found it again and must read it. There is even a forward by Dalai Lama.
I have been blessed by a monk. I am a lucky little tutu.
