TalkingFeather Radio interviews Sharif Abdullah founder of The Common Way Institute and author of several books including "Creating A World That Works For All". Sharif Abdullah is a world traveler most recently landing in Sri Lanka. He will share his views of the political and social climate in Sri Lanka that he has observed there while on his quest to create a world that works for all. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Quote from Sharif Abdullah' most recent email to Common Way Members. ------------------- "Recently, I was in the Midwest, doing a presentation on Sri Lanka before an audience of a few dozen people. To exemplify the Sri Lanka military, I downloaded a few photos of the proud Sri Lankan soldiers in their snappy uniforms, marching. One woman raised her hand and asked, “I thought Sri Lanka was a Buddhist country. Where are the Buddhists?" "To answer, I blew up the picture of the Sri Lanka soldiers, focusing on the hand of the soldier in the foreground. Around his wrist was a telltale white band. I told her, “These soldiers ARE the Buddhists. This band is the cord each one of them received when he went to the Buddhist temple to get the blessings from the monks, before marching off to kill human beings."
