An Important Mettā

Earlier this year during Ramadan, a prominent Burmese Buddhist abbott ventured into the South Dagon region of Yangon to send metta to the Muslim community after the Jama'at Khana mosque was shut down following the violent protest initiated by a Buddhist extremist mob. While media often highlights the more concerning aspects of the current religious problems in Myanmar, it is also important to document and share these small yet important acts of kindness and harmony that do exist.
