: Lord Buddha: Master of Inner Peace and Harmony

On black and white TV(pre-color)-he  of orange robes
takes a can of kerosine/douses himself in the street
in a Lotus position,allows himself to burn 
on the streets of Vietnam.

Banned and censored (even on our Internet)-
we hear reports from Tibet 
of Buddhists burning themselves
"self-immolation"(Chinese invasion)

Would Buddha embrace voluntary suffering so?
Would he burn with righteous self-inflicted flames?
Would he have dedicated his life to such freedoms?
or is peace a dying ember?

Meditate upon the politics of personal change
What must be done to re-verse invasions?
