Notification to International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)

Case No. 18/2016: State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee (SSMNC – Ma Ha Na)

 

NOTIFICATION TO International Buddhist Confederation (IBC)

On July 29, 2017, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights is communicating with Lama Lobzang Secretary General of the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) following the news that Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa (Chairman of the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar) is an IBC “Patron” member, being recognized by the IBC with the rank of “His Holiness”.

In the face of this terrible news, the International Buddhist Ethics Committee and Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights informed the IBC that on August 23, 2016 the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar was sentenced 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.

Faced with this situation, Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa clearly has no ethical legitimacy to become a Patron Member of the IBC, which is why we officially request a response by Secretary General Lama Lobzang within the next 7 days to the Buddhist Tribunal and urgently initiate a Formal procedure in order to expel Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, otherwise the IBC would be endorsing these crimes committed by the State Sangha Maha Nayaka Committee of Myanmar, which would be disastrous for the spiritual legitimacy of Buddhism at a global level. In case Secretary-General Lama Lobzang decides to ignore the Notification made by the Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights, it will be considered an act of Complicity with the crimes committed by Dr. Bhaddanta Kumarabhivamsa, being a clear Violation of Buddhist Law.

The International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights requests the International Buddhist Confederation (IBC) all necessary support in this matter linked not only to violations of the Buddhist Ethics of the Sangha but also linked to violations of International Human Rights Law.

You are hereby duly notified.

Always with spirit of reconciliation (maitri),

H.E. Master Maitreya Samyaksambuddha

President and Judge of the International Buddhist Ethics Committee & Buddhist Tribunal on Human Rights
