Lions Roar : November 2008
SHAMBHALA SUN NOVEMBER 2008 97 egation of monks was allowed to approach Suu Kyi’s house on Rangoon’s University Avenue. She came to the gate to receive their bless- ings. Wintle writes: “...the ‘widow of Ran- goon’ emerged from her crumbing colo- nial villa, advanced toward the monks, some say with tears streaming down her face, and joined them in prayers for the betterment of Burma, with an emphasis on metta—loving-kindness.” Thurman and Wintle offer necessary glimpses of these heroic figures and icons of nonviolent politics. We need to know about the Dalai Lama and Aung San Suu Kyi—what they think, how they act—because we share a planet with them. Their fates are intertwined with ours. But it is important to hon- or, as well, hidden heroes in the streets and prisons, born and to be born, who sooner or later will liberate Burma and Tibet. Remember them. Through their efforts and sacrifice we may yet see Aung San Suu Kyi and His Holiness the Dalai Lama walking with joy and sorrow in their native land. ♦ If you would like to know more about the philosophy, practice, and history of non- violent social action, I suggest these four books: • Gandhi on Non-Violence, edited and with an introduction by Thomas Merton • The Unconquerable World: Power, Non- violence, and the Will of the People, by Jonathan Schell • A Force More Powerful: A Century of Nonviolent Conflict, by Peter Ackerman and Jack Duvall • Waging Nonviolent Struggle: 20th-Century Practice and 21st-Century Potential, by Gene Sharp egatio October 24 – November 9, 2008 upaya zen center fall practice period for more information and to view our upcoming 2009 retreats visit our website at: www.upaya.org email:
