Tricycle magazine and Lion's Roar magazine published articles about our petition, so it received widespread attention.
Geshema Kelsang Wangmo, from Germany (the first female Geshe in history!) wrote to ask us to add her name to the signees, which we have done.
We received a short, polite response from the FPMT, thanking us for our concern and for expressing our perspective and advice, and saying they will keep us updated on further developments.
Although the original letter was written by senior nuns, anyone can sign the petition-- nuns or monks, senior or junior, as well as lay Buddhists, and anyone sincerely concerned about the issues.
Thank you for your support!
Keep fighting for people power!
