News about blasts at Bodh Gaya

The news about multiple blasts, injuring some Buddhist monks, at Bodh Gaya, India, on July 7, 2013, caused only a momentary sadden feeling. The act by whomever did it is deplorable, foolish and misguided. That the injured ones are Buddhist holy persons and pilgrims who are peaceful and harm no one also made the story worse. What (I) said did not mean to blame the culprits, since reasonably morally good people of the World would naturally blame them.  (I) feel neutral about this unnecessary violence, since whoever did it had reprogrammed their minds toward lower realms in their future reincarnations. It is a bad karma (i.e. intention and action) that they did not fully realize, which they chose the path themselves.

Note: In ultimate truth, 'self' is an illusion, so the word 'I' was put in a quote.
