All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

A Minor, A Major,

In the universe, or the world, or in one’s own memory, one might be just a minor person to compare with what one has known through experience. 

Whoever comparing oneself with others is a fool; if to compete, an egocentric. But also, one might feel that one could be a major one like anybody no particular.

One can and should admire the self giving people who are skillful at something positive which improving the general society morally. The bridge to goodness, virtue and the understanding of goodness and virtue is the works of the philosophers who physically involved in skillful constructions.

By knowing that, a minor one can become a major one by crossing this bridge. But one is always the most important person in one’s life to be able to get through tough experiences in crossing this bridge. After one has crossed the bridge, one can advise others how to cross the bridge; this is how one can straighten this beautiful bridge.

Importantly, whence crossing to the other side, one shouldn’t jump off the bridge into the darkness. And what equally important is that once reached the other side, or being there for a period of time, one shouldn’t cross back to the previous side where one used to be like a fool. However, the ones who have completely understood the other side of wisdom, never ever able to cross back to become fools again because only the fools cross the bridge back to the swamps.

Additionally,

The concept of A Minor A Mijor is based on the idea that - no matter how minor in the world or universe, everyone is the major person in their lives; we do everything for good and bad, and personally responsible for that. One is the major person in one's life just because of that. The reality of life is one is the one who acts and acted and to bear and bearing the consequences of one's actions. 


One is the major person responsible for one's life.
