Leter: issue 12-2

Dear Editor,

Someone must have got it completely wrong: either

Samdech Maha Ghosananda or your reporter. But to perceive that Cambodia, through

the Dhammayietra, "has changed from greediness to non-greediness" is a daring,

if not ignorant, perception. Maybe, Samdech Maha excluded in his perception the

Cambodian leaders who are, according to my perception, continuing to plunder the

country and exploiting the people for their own personal benefit (The extremely

rare, not greedy leaders only prove the rule within a very greedy leadership

caste.).

May I allow myself to give an advice to Samdech Maha and other

Cambodian Buddhist leaders: When basic Buddhist precepts are violated day by day

by who it may be it should be the duty of every upright Buddhist leader to speak

out and act clearly and unequivocally in favour of the discriminated, exploited

and oppressed. The wonderful phrases from theologians might please the

enligthened but will certainly not help the common people in their worsening

plight.
