sigh...perhaps this is why the Buddha made rules that nuns are not allowed to travel alone. Maybe okay for developed countries but not for that kind of countries...

May the nun recover and heal quickly. May there be no lasting effects from the assault. May her life continue in a perfect way and may she face no further obstacles. May she be able to transform this experience into a force for good. May all nuns everywhere be constantly protected and be free of harm and obstacles.

Om Mani Padme Hung Hri also for the rapists. While the nun experienced the ripening of her own bad karma which hopefully has now be expiated), the rapists made new bad karma which will undoubtedly take them to hell. Therefore, it is important that we pray for everyone involved, the victim and her assailants. In my experience, it is easy to feel sympathy for the victim (and rightly so), but is more difficult to feel sympathy for the assailants. Nevertheless, it is important as Bodhisattvas in training that we do so.
