I am Sara. I born in the snowy winter, In Tehran. And this is my story.
I didn’t know Buddhism. Four years ago I married a Buddhist guy in Iran . I know! Iranian Buddhist is so strange but is true. I married him .after marriage when I see his behavior I told myself: what is inside him? and what is the reason of this peaceful manner?
Two years ago my husband suddenly disappeared. After six hours he came back home.
Some people in Iranian government menaced him whit gun and hit his knee, then they quit him in mountain alone.
After that our life changed.
Four mount later this situation happened again. When he was going to bookstore in afternoon He disappear for seven days. He vanished. Me and our family was in a terrible situation .After seven days he came back. He tortured and menaced again. After that we decided to run away from Iran because if government arrested him again he must died.
Government arrested him because he is Buddhist and also Buddhist researcher.
In Iran when somebody change their religion they execute them.
We came to Malaysia and became refugee to UNHCR office.
He tolerance very bad situation. Because of that, now he has a Asthma, heart and lien problem. And pain in his knee. Because of our financial problem he could not visit a doctor.
We decide to try our best and instant of being angry to our world and being calm until time change and our life will be normal.
“He is so strong. When I see him, I see dharma wheel turning. Like whatever lord Buddha said.”
