I received the following notice about a demonstration in Seattle Friday from Anne at the Seattle office of the Tibetan Nuns Project.

from Alan Ness:
"Sometimes a small wedge can move a large boulder

Tibet/Burma – Dignified Demonstration

What: Demonstration of concern for Tibet and Burma. Focus on releasing monks and nuns, our brothers and sisters.

When: Friday March 21, 2008, between 4 and 6 PM. Join us for any length of time.

Where: In front of the Federal Building, 915 Second Avenue, downtown Seattle.

How: Walking Meditation. Bring your malas and your compassion. I will bring a sign: Tibet/Burma: Release monks and nuns. Wear uplifting colours.

: Everyone welcome; focus on all Tibetan and Vipashana sanghas. But ALL Welcome!

Why: Because my brother was imprisoned in Burma, and my sister was imprisoned in Tibet. Help me get their release.

You can feel compassion regardless of whether
you view the other person as a friend or an enemy.
It is based on the other's fundamental rights
rather than your own mental projection.

H. H. The Dalai Lama
