    WE are living in buddhist majority country which loves not only animals but also human .

    Mr.Sri Lankan, I agree with you fully. I hope the Clergy will practice what they preach and refrain from violence. There is no harm in protesting, FOLLOW GHANDHI'S NON VIOLENT SATYAGRHA

    Its amazing how other religions luv telling Buddhists to act with patience and calmness but when their own cultures and religions are attacked even in literature e.g. Salmon Rusdie. Their are orders them to be executed etc etc. Its pathetic!

    Saman Thursday, 04 October 2012 11:09 AM

    Could be Bangladeshi T20 fans who are upset about their early exit!

    Sumi Thursday, 04 October 2012 11:17 AM

    It should be about the attacks on Buddhists in Bangladesh..
    These were happening in Bangladesh for some time as I remember..

    Monster Thursday, 04 October 2012 11:15 AM

    Why didn't you march to Myanmar embassy when Buddhists did massacre against Muslims in Myanmar. Thousands of Muslims lost their lives and properties during the massacre.

    Indeewara Jayasinghe Saturday, 06 October 2012 02:42 AM

    thumbs up to you kabir ,There are hell a lot of people who want to ignite violence,but very few who genuinely want promote peace!!!!!!!!!

    ib Saturday, 06 October 2012 03:53 AM

    Such peaceful monks.

    Managala Thursday, 04 October 2012 11:32 AM

    It might be the same reason led Muslims do this in Bangladesh.religions should be respected and cruelty at one end cannot justify one in another......

    Junior Citizen Thursday, 04 October 2012 11:40 AM

    Buddhism teach non violence-these hooligans does not understand Dhamma

    Demo Thursday, 04 October 2012 11:55 AM

    Where is Doctor?
    missing in action!!

    sanju de silva Friday, 05 October 2012 06:51 AM

    This anger and intolerance is the very antithesis of Buddhism. But I guess Sri Lankan Buddhism (a "born again" Buddhism, maybe) is now established as essentially violent. We can only hope and pray for the blessings of the Triple Gem.

    No need to invite or remind India to get involved. They do that anyway. Somebody has to remind India to mind their own business and build toilets for their people who excrete on pavements, parks or anywhere they like.

    Just Another Citizen Friday, 05 October 2012 07:17 AM

    Most clergymen wear robes to gain benefits & not to practice what they preach

    xlntgson Saturday, 06 October 2012 04:43 AM

    What Salman Rusdie wrote, Nakoula alias Sam Bacile tried to make a film, and before release made millions! Are you condoning or condemning blasphemy, uploading provocative in web internet?

    Em Friday, 05 October 2012 01:35 AM

    Well said..

    Rania Friday, 05 October 2012 07:54 AM

    The government and the buddhists priests must take care of a few extremists buddhists who are all out to create trouble. We do not want this after all the suffering in the war of 30 years that has finally ended.

    Sammy Thursday, 04 October 2012 01:12 PM

    This must be in response to Rauf Hakeem's comment on "saffron terrorism", to show him what some muslim's themselves are upto elsewhere. Whatever, this tit for tat escalation should be stopped forthwith.

    Taj Friday, 05 October 2012 07:53 AM

    I am in the process of writing a book on " commonalities between the teachings of Great Prophet Mohammed and Great Master Gauthama Buddha.

    Kabir Thursday, 04 October 2012 01:14 PM

    Hi everyone, I am from Dhaka, Bangladesh. I saw this event as breaking news on TV. The attacks on Buddhists in Bangladesh is a shame for us. I only sorry and feel for you all in Sri Lanka.

    Lal Thursday, 04 October 2012 01:17 PM

    It's good to protest, we must stand against violence

    Curious Thursday, 04 October 2012 02:25 PM

    It is a shame for the religion and as well as the monks who are participating.

    Taliban Friday, 05 October 2012 03:59 PM

    Boooooohaaaaaaaaaaa....

    sanjaya Friday, 05 October 2012 03:20 AM

    then why did Sri Lankan Muslims protested last few weeks against USA film. think twice before commenting

    Kadir Thursday, 04 October 2012 02:58 PM

    I do not know why these Srilankans make it big fuss about it.
    These things happen everywhare including in Srilanka.

    Rania Thursday, 04 October 2012 03:19 PM

    All organised by extremists who are jelous of others who are doing well.

    tarek mahmud Thursday, 04 October 2012 03:25 PM

    every action has reaction. this reaction is good but it should not create another violence. we are Bangladeshi and we also hate and protest this violence.

    buffaloa citizen Friday, 05 October 2012 03:29 AM

    Saffron terrorism does takes place in this country, specifically from the very top. Buddhism is greatest practice for an exemplary life style, however so called patriotic buddhists and monks using this as an instrument for racism and religeos should be kicked out for bringing sacrilege on the great teachings of Lord Buddha.

    Sid Friday, 05 October 2012 09:07 AM

    While d happenings in Bangladesh shud be roundly condemned but why target d embassy? Dont forget Bangladesh sided with SL at d UNHRC vote

    Monkey Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:37 PM

    There are millions of buddhist migrant workers in middle east, i hope they wont be attacked as a payback for myanmar buddhist's attack on muslims

    karu Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:47 PM

    No need to post comments from people who show two faces....

    Calmness: the Buddha’s advice

    * Recognition of anger is the first step. Mindfulness is the teaching of Buddha that helps manage anger by being aware that it exists and needs patience to face the problem.

    * Practice patience. To lay the ground, we must first tame the mind. To tame the mind, it is extremely important to do the basic samata [tranquility meditation] practice, which develops calmness.

    * Develop compassion. If you have a warm heart that feels the need to help others, serve, respect and share, you can experience a feeling that makes you happy. You will realize that to live with compassion and love will make your life more meaningful each day.
    * Stay away from provocative situations that trigger anger. A situation that made you angry should not be pursued but try to divert your attention to other things that can pacify anger

    if bangaladesh problem becomes sri lanka's problem, then sri lanka's problem become india's problem. it is justified too.if india intervene in sri lanka.

    shukri mim Thursday, 04 October 2012 05:07 PM
