This should be a wake up call for the Hodgman government which has ripped up Tasmania’s ClimateSmart strategy and continues to subsidise the emissions-intensive native forest logging industry.

This is a letter from the young Vietnamese man I met when another member of Buddhist Contemplative Care Tasmania I were going out to Pontville in 2013. We have written to each other for over two years now. I have encouraged him in his practice and to remain calm and strong. He has and look how well he is doing. He has practised strong determination, what the Buddha called Adhiṭṭhāna which is one of the Paramis. Already he is practising to be a Buddha.
Tôi sửng sốt khi nhận được giấy mời từ văn phòng Liên hiệp quốc tại Geneva, Thụy Sỹ - Invitation for releasing “T. T. Weapon book at UN Geneve”. Tôi giật thót mình và sợ rằng bị bom thư hay bị bọn khủng bố gửi gì đó vì thấy có từ weapon, tức là vũ khí. Tôi không mở 2 file đi kèm vì tin rằng loại thư này đến hòm thư của mỗi chúng ta rất nhiều mỗi ngày.
