I just came across this open letter which was written by Dzongzar Khyentse Rinpoche, a relatively well-known Bhutanese buddhist, to Aung San Suu Kyi. It seems very wide ranging and touches on a lot of subjects, not least Western colonialism in Asia, the retraction of various honours bestowed on Aung San Suu Kyi following the way the Rohingya have been treated, and his support for her despite continuing Western thought influence on the world stage.
It’s more than a little controversial and there are Buddhists on both sides of the discussion. What I found interesting is the very clear West-Asia split in the Rinpoche’s thinking, and the way that it is obvious that he thinks that the Western influence on Asia is harmful in a number of ways. Perhaps it might throw up some good discussion points...
The lion’s roar article is one of a number of good starting points if you want to do some reading. The original letter is on Facebook.
