For my Kachin Friends: နင္ဘာရလို႔လဲ-လူသတ္သမား

နင္ဘာရလို႔လဲ-လူသတ္သမား
ဘီစီ ၂၆၁ မွာ ၿဖစ္ပြားခဲ့တဲ့ အာေသာက ဘုရင္ ရဲ႕ Kalinga ( မိလိဂၤ ) စစ္ပြဲတခု အေႀကာင္းကို မွတ္မိႀကလိမ့္မယ္။ အာေသာက ဘုရင္ဟာ သူ႕ရဲ႕ အင္ပါယာ လံုၿခံဳမႈအတြက္ Kalinga ကို တိုက္ယူ သိမ္းပိုက္မွရမယ္လို႔ ယံုတယ္။ ဒါေပမဲ့ အာေသာက ရဲ႕ က်ဴးေက်ာ္မႈကို မိလိဂၤ နယ္ေၿမမွ ကေလး၊ မိန္းမေတြ မက်န္ အေသခံ ခုခံႀကတယ္။ လူေပါင္း (၂) သိန္းခြဲေက်ာ္ ေသေႀကခဲ့တဲ့ စစ္ပြဲပါ။ အာေသာက ဘုရင္ဟာ စစ္ပြဲႀကီးကို ေအာင္ၿမင္ခဲ့ပါတယ္။
ႀကီးက်ယ္ေအာင္ၿမင္မႈကို ခံစားဖို႔အတြက္ လသာေနတဲ့ ညမွာ ေလသာေဆာင္ ၿပတင္းတံခါးကို ဖြင့္လိုက္တယ္။ မလွမ္းမကမ္း စစ္တလင္း ၿပင္ႀကီးဆီမွာ ညဟာ အနီေရာင္ေသြးညွီနံ႕ေတြ ဖိတ္ယိုက်ေနတယ္။ ညီးၿငဴသံေတြ စုတ္တသတ္သတ္ ေရရြတ္သံေတြ — လူးလိမ့့္ေနတဲ့ ပံုရိပ္ေတြ —

အာေသာက ဘုရင္ အတြက္ေတာ့ သူထင္ခဲ့တဲ့ ေအာင္ၿမင္မႈေတြ ဆိုတာ သူ႔အတြက္ ဒဏ္ရာ အနာတရ က်ိန္စာေတြလိုမ်ိဳးၿဖစ္လာတယ္။ ေဆာက္တည္ရာမရ ၿဖစ္တာေတာ့ လမ္းမေပၚကို ထြက္ေလွ်ာက္လိုက္မိတယ္။ အရုးမတေယာက္လို ရုပ္ပ်က္ဆင္းပ်က္ငိုယိုေနတဲ့ မိန္းမႀကီး တေယာက္က သူ႔ကို လက္ညွိဳးထိုးၿပီး—-

“လူသတ္သမား နင့္ေႀကာင့္ ငါ့ရဲ႕ ေယာကၤ်ား ငါ့ကေလးေတြ ငါ့အေမေတြ ေသဆံုးခဲ့ရၿပီ —”

” နင္ ဘာေတြပိုင္ဆိုင္လိုက္ရလို႔လဲ နင္ဘာေတြ ပိုင္ဆိုင္လိုက္ရလို႔လဲ လူသတ္သမား ” တဲ့။

စစ္ပြဲရဲ႕ အနိ႒ာရံုေတြဟာ အာေသာက ကို ၿပင္းၿပင္းထန္ထန္သတိေပး ယူႀကံဳးမရၿဖစ္ေစခဲ့တယ္။ သူဟာ ဒီစစ္ပြဲကို ဖန္တီးခဲ့သူ၊ လူေတြရဲ႕ ဘဝေတြကို ဖ်က္ဆီးခဲ့သူ …

    Ashoka explains that he converted to Buddhism out of remorse for his conquest of the Kalingas around 261 BCE in eastern India (near the present-day state of Orissa):
    Beloved-of-the-Gods, King Piyadasi, conquered the Kalingas eight years after his coronation. One hundred and fifty thousand were deported, one hundred thousand were killed and many more died (from other causes). After the Kalingas had been conquered, Beloved-of-the-Gods came to feel a strong inclination towards the Dhamma, a love for the Dhamma and for instruction in Dhamma. Now Beloved-of-the-Gods feels deep remorse for having conquered the Kalingas. Rock Edict Nb13 (S. Dhammika)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edicts_of_Ashoka

    http://enAshoka had seen the bloodshed with his own eyes and felt that he was the cause of the destruction. The whole of Kalinga was plundered and destroyed. Ashoka’s later edicts state that about 100,000 people were killed on the Kalinga side and almost equal number of Ashoka’s army. Thousands of men and women were deported. Ashoka after seeing this was filled with sorrow and remorse.

    Ashoka’s response to the Kalinga War is recorded in the Edicts of Ashoka. The Kalinga War prompted Ashoka, already a non-engaged Buddhist[citation needed], to devote the rest of his life to Ahimsa (non-violence) and to Dharma-Vijaya (victory through Dharma). Following the conquest of Kalinga, Ashoka ended the military expansion of the empire, and led the empire through more than 40 years of relative peace, harmony and prosperity.

Now Beloved-of-the-Gods feels deep remorse for having conquered the Kalingas.” Rock Edict No.13[7]

    According to oral histories, a woman approached him and said, “Your actions have taken from me my father, husband, and son. Now what will I have left to live for?”. Moved by these words, it is said, that he accepted/adopted Buddhism, and vowed to never take life again..http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalinga_War

    Kalinga War was a war fought between the Mauryan Empire under Ashoka the Great and the state of Kalinga, a feudal republic located on the coast of the present-day Indian state of Orissa and nothern parts of Andhra Pradesh.The Kalinga city is capital of Kalinga kingdom, it is situated in present day Srikakulam, Andhra Pradesh. The Kalinga war, the only major war Ashoka fought after his accession to throne, is one of the major and bloodiest battles in the history of World. Kalinga put up a stiff resistance, but they were no match for Ashoka’s brutal strength. The bloodshed of this war is said to have prompted Ashoka to adopt Buddhism. However, he retained Kalinga after its conquest and incorporated it into the Maurya Empire. Source:Wikipedia
