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.

Two Halves Make One

We coexist.
We need each other.
We make a life in a world. We might not be unique but we don't need to know another world. We make contentment. We make understanding, agreement and share of investment. We invest everything known by us, owned by us and limited to us.

We don't want to live in a world that is only half - imagine if we have the halved earth! It cannot be beautiful. It can't be working. It can’t be meaningful. It can’t be for us. We must live a world that is full, a whole, marvellous...

That’s how we need both of us
That is to exist as long as we exist
That is to last as long as we last
That’s how we share
We give up to possess
Only to possess ourselves
But we only possess each other to give, even more and more,
We are to fertilize the shoots of love inside each other’s hearts
We will make it grow well
We must

But we must not be attached to each other.
We are individuals with differences.
We must be always being aware that we have invested these differences to make them into a good use. We have our freedoms that are also invested in our world.

We must recognize we are only the length that we live. We must accept the reality of each other. And from this we must grow, mature and become wiser... simply for each other.

Everyday we live and we live for the good of us, the wisdom we can share that is also reinvested in our world.

That is the purpose of our lives.
We are who we are and must not be changed by nonsense. We must be always open to each other but not to nonsense.

That is because we want the beautiful world.
