Yesterday was International Human Rights Day, so let me share a reflection and express my support for human rights as a Buddhist. As a Buddhist, the undertaking of the precepts is the most basic practice that cuts across all major Buddhist traditions.  As a ritual, Buddhists often recite the Five Precepts on a daily basis to remind themselves of their duties to self and society.
As Buddhists, we cannot condone such acts as, the abuse of women and children from the homes to places of work.


As such it is not difficult for Buddhists to associate our practice of the precepts with the Declaration of Human Rights. Soon (aka Vidyananda) is an executive committee member of International Network of (Socially) Engaged Buddhists.
