Dalai Lama Urges Burma’s Monks to Remember Their Faith
18 September 2013
The Dalai Lama on Tuesday urged Burma’s monks to act according to their Buddhist principles, in a plea to end the deadly violence against the country’s Muslim minority, according to AFP. “Those Burmese monks, please, when they develop some kind of anger toward Muslim brothers and sisters, please, remember the Buddhist faith,” the Buddhist leader told AFP at an annual human rights conference in the Czech capital Prague, where he met with Burma’s opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi on Sunday. “I am sure…that would protect those Muslim brothers and sisters who are becoming victims,” Tibet’s exiled spiritual leader said.
