Parliament Participants Support Bat Nha Monastery

This video was spontaneously created during the 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions, Melbourne.  As the creator states:

“The day before the end of the parliament, I viewed a 10 minute video telling the story of the atrocities that have occurred at the Bat Nha Monasteries in Viet Nam. After the video, a number of us continued in a meeting to discuss what we had just seen and what we could possibly do about it. One of the ideas we came up with was to video tape parliament participants the next morning sending their support and blessings from the parliament and post them on YouTube for the monks and nuns from Bat Nha (and hopefully many others) to be able to see.” –Hal Martin
