Case No. 18/2016: State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na)
Legal Requirement to Spiritual Patrons of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)
August 5th, 2017
Dear His Holiness the Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatso, His Holiness Thich Pho Tue, His Holiness Master Jinje & His Holiness Sanghanayaka Sudhananda Mahathero,
As a result of the lack of response by Lama Lobzang, Secretary General of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), to a formal Notification dated July 29, 2017 where he is requested to initiate a process of expulsion of the IBC Patron named “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa” (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), we inform Their Holinesses the terrible situation of violation of Buddhist Law that is being committed by the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC). The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the immediate suspension and expulsion of the Patron “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa” because this individual has been involved in genocidal activities and Crimes against Humanity in Myanmar, which constitutes not only a violation of Buddhist Law but also the worst violation of International Human Rights Law. Indeed, the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar was previously sentenced in 2016 as Responsible for the serious crimes of FALSE BUDDHISM and VIOLATION OF THE BUDDHIST LEGAL CODE (VINAYA), OPPRESSION and ILLEGAL DETENTIONS AGAINST BUDDHIST SANGHA, COMPLICITY WITH DISCRIMINATION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN, VIOLATION OF FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION, VIOLATION OF THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS AND TRIBAL PEOPLES, CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY AND PEACE, COMPLICITY WITH GENOCIDE AND ETHNIC CLEANSING.
Maintaining criminals within the Buddhist Community (Sangha) is an attack on the sacredness of the Spirituality founded by Siddhartha Gautama Buddha 2600 years ago. Therefore, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests Their Holinesses to require Lama Lobzang to urgently initiate the suspension and subsequent expulsion of the Patron named “Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa “(Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar), since this individual does not deserve to be a member nor a Patron of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC). In case the Lama Lobzang continues to fail in his functions to maintain ethical and moral purity of the Great Buddhist Commune (Maha-Sangha), then we will be obliged to be faithful to Truth and Justice by ruling the Complicity of Lama Lobzang with violations of Buddhist Law and Human Dignity. As Patrons of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC), we urge Their Holinesses to advise Lama Lobzang to behave properly, following the most appropriate and correct standards of Buddhist Spirituality, which should never be involved in genocidal acts and international crimes violating Human Rights.
Always with a spirit of reconciliation (maitri),
Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha
President and Judge of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
