house arrest for aung san suu kyi

On June 19, 2010, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi will celebrate her 65th birthday.  She has been under house arrest for 14 years since she returned to support the people of Burma.  Each year there is a call for a day of contemplation or a day of “house arrest” to demonstrate solidarity with her and the people of Burma.

Please consider a “house arrest” in whatever form it can take for you.  A day of mindfulness, a period of sitting meditation, a choice in a moment to “arrest” an unskillful thought, word or action.

It will make a difference.

Today’s 108buddha is dedicated to all those who are imprisoned and endure violence so that the world may wake up.

Thank you for practicing,

Genju
