This issue of Seeds of Peace is dedicated to the late Dr. Puey Ungphakorn, who passed away in England on July 28, 1999. In fact it was Dr. Puey who first coined the term, Santi (Peace), Pracha (Public Participation) and Dhamma (Truth) as an expression of the noble ideal to which all who aspire to bringing social and economic justice into the world should aspire. In fact the Santi Pracha Dhamma Institute is the main organ of the family of organizations led by Sulak Sivaraksa who was very close to and much influenced by Dr. Puey. All of these organizations strive in their various ways to introduce and spread the ideals of peace, democracy and truth in Thai society and worldwide. Thus for any of the good works which may be accomplished by these organizations, we must dedicate the merit to the late Dr. Puey for his inspiration.
