Let us take a moment to remember those who suffered and perish in the recent spate of disasters.
Earthquake in Samoa, Indonesia, and Typhoon in Manila, Indonesia.
May they receive help swiftly and find peace and comfort where ever they are. May those who perished have good conditions to be reborn in the human realms where they can learn and practise the Buddha-Dharma and in due time attain Final Liberation, Nibbana.
With so much suffering around already, may the rest of the world find peace in their mind and lay their arms to rest. May they not incur any more suffering onto others through mindless wars.
