I realise this is a place to mention the week in Amida France on non-violence and conflict transformation. I posted a lot of discussion board notices about it yesterday, not realising that all would briefly appear on the main page. So sorry to repeat, but having received this message from Modgala this group does seem an obvious place to mention the week.

It's at Amida France, 19th to 23rd July inclusive, facilitated by Zee-Zee Heine, Bhaktika Mike Fitter and myself. Zee-Zee's experience in non-violence work, Bhaktika's in conflict transformation will be brought together within the context of Pureland Buddhism. An interesting mix we think!

Hello Koizumi Good to hear from you. Amida Trust was formed to encourage social engagement as many Buddhists in the UK have mainly been interested in meditation. We are a small Pureland school, however many of our members are very active in various fields of social engagement. Please do keep writing - Namo amida Bu

Hello everyone. I'm koizumi hitoshi from japan. i belong to Tendai School in Japan. But in my point of view, I'm an awared Buddhist here in Japan. As you know, most Japanese are not Buddhists at all. They don't have any hope with the current Buddhism in Japan, which only deals with funeral, never with our mission of our lives. Could you tell me a lot about the state of Buddhism in your country?
Best Regards.

My thoughts on this subject: I promote peace in my daily activities and work; however, I feel that protest is an activity against something which draws the same type of behavior back to itself, no matter how peaceful that protest is.
