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.

EVIL! wHAT iS iT?

Evil is the act of a deliberate cause for self-failure by means of: pursuing a short termed goal, or pursuing short termed pleasure, or pursuing negligible desires.

Evil is the act of self-failure, with shortsightedness.

Evil is self failing when short termed rise is to cause long termed fall. It's like throwing up a stone into the air above a cliff that it's fall will be far deeper than its rise.

There are many ways to the long termed fall/failure. Generally speaking: silliness, ignorance, delusion, shortsightedness, misunderstanding, belief in foul promises (gullibility), negligence, laziness are the main causes of nullification and thus self-failure.

Evil doesn't bring happiness.

Evil doer can feel very good at the peak of evil heights. At he evil fall, nobody is laughing.

Nobody is falling if we all know how to rise only.

Evil comes from evil act. Evil act comes from evil act - there is no ending of evil if not stopping it with willpower.

The development of the willpower only to oppose evil and evil act is the only tool we have to fight evil. We cannot really fight evil with other means - violence or non-violence doesn't matter.

But be careful not to misunderstand 'evil is the act of self-failure'. Don't take it out of context.
