Buddhist Peace Fellowship Events

Engaged Buddhist Views of Cambodia, Thailand & the Burmese Border:
Slides and Discussion with Sue Moon & Alan Senauke 
at the Berkeley Zen Center, 1933 Russell St., Berkeley
Sunday, May 21, 7:30 pm 
In late February Turning Wheel editor Sue Moon and BPF National 
Coordinator Alan Senauke represented BPF at the annual International 
Network of Engaged Buddhists conference in Thailand. Along the way Sue 
travelled to Cambodia, meeting with monks, nuns and lay people working 
to heal a wounded nation. Together, Alan and Sue visited the Mon region 
of the Thai/Burma border, where BPF has supported medical aid for 
displaced Burmese. Join them while the images are still sharp.  
Donations towards medical aid for Burmese refugees will be gratefully 
accepted. The need is urgent.
