"The Management Committee & Members of the Federation of Australian Buddhist Councils (FABC) would like to convey our deepest condolences to family and friends of the victims of the Sydney hostage crisis. We also extend our gratitude to the NSW police and emergency services personnel who put their lives at risk in the service of others.

We look to the age old teachings of the Lord Buddha who explained; Those who inflict violence to the peaceful and harmless will eventually encounter the same in return. Buddhist believe in Karma; meaning good intent and good deeds contribute to good Karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad Karma and eventual future suffering. Therefore those that seek to inflict pain, disaster, physical injury or the taking of another life, will at some future stage experience the same fate themselves.
