I arrived at BKK Suvarnabhumi airport tonight and seen a big banner sign that had buddha photos and words said: "Please help stop disrespectful use of Buddha images and statues that is occuring all over the world."


This was first I've noticed anything like that, I followed up by checking their website:  http://5000s.org/


You can see lots ways that this organization believes some places, restaurants, bars, monuments etc are disrespecting their precious Buddha. Some I can understand are pretty messed up, like making chairs or foot rests of Buddha, those are obviously totally disrespectful, but the ones like Buddha Lounge maybe they are being a bit overly sensitive.


Anyways, just wanted to post about this, I'm sure some of you have seen those banners when exiting the baggage area at Suvarnabhumi :)
