He is up for consideration as "most brilliant" blog, and already appears to be finalist in the News category.
This young Burmese Buddhist monk had to leave Myanmar to protect his own life, and now lives in Sri Lanka. His visa there runs out this May, in less than 3 weeks, and the chance to win the $2000 prize for most brilliant blog would be extremely vital to his efforts to survive and to move on to another nation, as a Buddhist refugee from Myanmar's oppressive actions.
Please take one minute and vote for Ashin's blog. You would be doing more good than you can imagine. The votes will be concluded at the end of April 30, at midnight.l
