Vince this issue is due on the new year, we send you our greetings for peace and happiness. But unfortunately so many of our brothers and sisters are suffering so much in so many parts of the world. In Malaysia, many are in gaol. In Tibet basic human rights are still being abused. In Vietnam, many leading religious persons are in troubles. In Bangladash the Chakmas are still being treated very badly. And the list is indefinite. Yet, we must practise our loving kindness to all beings, including those oppressors in every land. However, we must raise public consciousness among those who are more fortunate that we must do what we can to lessen unjust systems and to share some sufferings with others so that compassion will not be only on our lips but be a part of our livelihood.
