Personal Appeal for Peace from Thai Buddhist Sulak Sivaraksa

We would like to appeal to the Sinhala Buddhists first of all to acknowledge the crimes that they committed against their own Tamil sisters and brothers and ask for forgiveness from the Tamils. Rejoicing at the war victories, when thousands have been killed, ‘disappeared', maimed, raped and hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced and detained, is totally against the dhamma.

Ecovillage Design Education and Training of Trainers 2012
ImageAround the world, in urban and rural settings, in the global North and South, you can find ecovillages. Existing, traditional communities, indigenous tribal villages and new intentional communities – all communities of people who have come together, usually sharing common values or spirituality (sometimes called worldviews). In all cases, people together building sustainable life styles with a common social framework.

Yoneo Ishii

 Since late last year it seems that I've continuously lost good friends-one after another. It is a sad but inescapable fact for a 77-year-old man like me.  The latest on the list is Professor Yoneo Ishii who passed away on 13th February 2010 in Japan.

 

Professor Ishii was my first Japanese friend, and he had been a good friend for almost half a century. He was a vital figure in the Thai Studies and Southeast Asian Studies circles. He had a profound love for and understanding of Thai culture. He had wanted to live in the Thai kingdom and to study the Thai language since he was very young. He sat on an entrance examination and got accepted by the Japanese ministry of foreign affairs. Given his impressive capability and diplomatic skills, he was highly rated by his superiors. They asked him where he would like to be posted abroad. They thought Ishii would choose the US or England. To their surprise, Ishii said he wanted to work in the Thai kingdom.

Abdurrahman Wahid

 Once they assumed power many of my close friends would often alter their stance toward me, become indifferent, or even declare that I'm their enemy. Wahid was an important exception. Even when he was president of Indonesia (the first to do so through the democratic process) he remained steadfast in our friendship. He had even invited me to be a guest at the presidential palace.

Wise, irrepresssible, and a bit of a troublemaker

MARTIN FLANAGAN
December 5, 2009


SULAK Sivaraksa, who is in Melbourne for the Parliament of the World's Religions, says he is known by many labels in his home country of Thailand.

To some he is "the Siamese intellectual". "To the Thai Government," he says with some merriment, "I am the troublemaker."

Aged 77, Mr Sivaraksa faces three charges of defaming the Thai king, which carries a possible sentence of 45 years in prison. "I could spend my 120th birthday in jail," he says, again with some merriment.
