Myanmar Folk Tale: Metamorphosis of Saviors into Monsters

Once upon a time, long long time ago, there was a village in a far away remote area of Burma called, let’s say, Shwe Bama village. Because of the constant disturbances of the wild beast, the villagers were wishing, praying and waiting for a hero to fight and kill the beast and to liberate them.

One day a prince came to the village and offered his self-less humanitarian voluntary service for the liberation of the village. The prince fought and successfully killed the beast, so the villagers thanked him and offered all the rewards including the right to rule their village. But later the kindhearted, handsome and noble prince surprisingly disappeared from the village. Worse of all, there also suddenly appeared a new ogre (giant) in the forest near the village.

Buddhists aren’t always peaceful

 Buddhists aren’t always peaceful

Stephen Prothero is a professor in Boston University’s religion department and the author of “The American Bible: How Our Words Unite, Divide, and Define a Nation.”

When we think of Buddhism we don’t usually think of a man with a gun. We think instead of the Buddha sitting quiet and cross-legged, deep in meditation. Or of the Nobel Peace Prize winner the Dalai Lama, refusing to resort to violence in his struggle for a free Tibet.
