Stoning

Yesterday a massive global outcry stopped an Iranian woman, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, from being stoned to death.

Sakineh's brave children's international campaign shows that worldwide condemnation works. Let's turn this family's desperate appeal into a movement that ends stoning for good - sign the petition and send to everyone.

To harm her is to harm all. Far away from our bed many can suffer. In our street only one must be harmed to get all attention and movement.

Thank you BFS. I hope the work by Avaaz can help to open peoples (like politicians as well) painful delusions and see all are our family and no gender has any value in EQUANIMITY.

The value of living beings should not be pushed aside for the technology-economy satisfaction.
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
