Buddhist contries often make it into the international headlines, but seldom it seems, for events inspired by compassion, selflessnes or loving kindness. Much of this rainy season edition of Seeds of Peace, then is dedicated to investigating a few of the current issues in Buddhist lands.
Mr. P.J. Chakma, a member of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists (INEB), submitted an article on the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh. As well, the letters section of this journal contains a note from Ven. Bimal Tishya regarding the CHT.
We also printed a few articles on Burma, as well as two proposals to Peace Brigades International (PBI) written by the INEB secretariate to help towards reconciliation in Burma and Sri Lanka. If anyone is interested in obtaining more information about these projects, please contact the Peace Brigades International representative for Southeast Asia through the INEB office in Thailand. The project proposal for PBI in Sri Lanka was written by one of the members of the international Buddhist peace delegation which was sent to that country in March of this year through TICD.Vol.5-No.3-September-2532-1989
