Although there were much suffering in the world, we at Thai Inter-Religious Commission for Development and Santi Pracha Dhamma Institute tried to do what we could, in our country as well as in other Buddhist lands. Some of these activities have been reported in this issue.
Internationally, we joined hands with many other organizations, which try to bring about world peace, e.g. the Asian Buddhist Conference for Peace in Ulan Bator and the Life and Peace Institute in Upsala. Through Karma, the Scandinavian Journal for Buddhism in Norway, we had a chance to link meaningfully with the International Peace Research Institute of Oslo, which will hopefully collaborate with us in the near future.
Although the situation in Tibet is not better, we extend our symphathetic joy to H.H. the Dalai Lama who received the Nobel Peace Prize on 12 December. Hopefully things will be smoother for our Tibetan friends in their homeland.Vol.6-No.1-January-2533-1990
