Please Save Lumbini - the Buddha's birthplace

Dear All Dharma Friends,

I wish to appeal to you personally to visit this very important website that is making attempts, against all the odds, to raise awareness about the danger facing Buddha's birthplace: Lumbini.

Kindly circulate this email as widely as possible and to as many as you can; asking everyone to sign the petition, the very least action we can all do.

Put this link on your FaceBook as well.

I take this opportunity to also attach a joint statement from a recent conference on Buddhist cultural heritage. jointly organized by ICCR and Sitagu, for your information. A few countries attended and talked about the importance of preserving, both tangible and intangible, Buddhist cultural heritage.

With metta and in the dharma,
Ven. Khammai Dhammasami
