Dear Friends of INEB, greetings from Bangkok.
We appreciate your ongoing support as we continue the work throughout the pandemic and following the military coup in Burma/Myanmar. Please read the diverse country reports which highlight issues, as well as, inspiring news from our members around the world beginning with Burma-Myanmar through the USA.
This issue also includes more articles and reports from INEB, the INEB Institute and the Spirit in Education Movement. Among the articles is one our close friend Mangesh Dahiwale wrote incisively about the relevance of Dr Ambedkar’s understanding ancient India’s history of revolution and counter-revolution today. Another dear friend and INEB member, Alan Senauke writes about the price of freedom in his article and reminds us to be patient and compassionate to ourself and others. He stated, “Buddhas and ancestors will support us, even when the world is on fire.”
INEB congratulates our close friend, Venerable Shih Chao-hwei who is the 38th recipient of the 38th Niwano Peace Prize. Please read the reason for her selection as well as her heartfelt and inspiring acceptance speech. We also congratulate Harsha Kumara Navaratne, Chairperson of INEB’s Executive Committee, on his recent appointment as High Commissioner-designate of Sri Lanka to Canada.
We are also looking forward to seeing many of you during INEB’s next international conference scheduled for October 23 – 30, 2022 in South Korea.
