Viet Nam update

Dear friends

A difficult, immediate situation in Vietnam, has arisen. Nobel Peace Prize Nominee Thich Nhat Hanh's Vietnam-based Bat Nha monastery is under severe economic, violent, and governmental pressure to abandon the monastery by September 2. The cause: Two statements supporting religious freedom, a core principle of democracy. ---- see more in the links below:

It would be very helpful if as many of us as possible signed the petition to help keep this beacon of hope alive, in the troubled homeland of Thich Nhat Hanh.

With loving kindness
