For UN Vesak Day 2019

As an attending member of the Botswana Buddhist Association, I am honored to write this message of congratulations to the Most Venerable Dr. Thich Thien Nhon, President, United Nations Day of Vesak Celebration 2019 and President of the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha; and to the Most Venerable Prof. Dr. Phra Brahmapundit, President, International Council for Day of Vesak and President, International Association of Buddhist Universities.

I am grateful that you are arranging this two-day International Celebration and Academic Conference of the 16th United Nations Day of Vesak hosted by the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (NVBS) at the Tam Chuc International Buddhist Convention Center in Ha Nam Province in Hanoi, Vietnam from May 12-14, 2019.

The Celebration and Academic Conferences overarching theme of “Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership and shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societiesis one that continues to be relevant in communities across the globe. It is gratifying that the global Buddhist community will get the opportunity to congregate and discuss, analyze and propose substantive solutions to this theme and its subtopics of:
  1. Mindful Leadership for Sustainable Peace
  2. Buddhist Approach to Harmonious Families, Healthcare and Sustainable Societies
  3. Buddhist Approach to Global Education in Ethics
  4. Buddhism and the Fourth Industrial Revolution
  5. Buddhist Approach to Responsible Consumption and Sustainable Development


I am hopeful that by fostering cooperation and understanding among Buddhist communities and institutions, incremental progress will be made in developing sustainable Buddhist solutions to global crises.

I am most humbled by this invitation to participate in such an auspicious event and trust that the participation of the African contingent will further the understanding and promulgation of Buddhism in Botswana and the wider African continent.

I hereby wish this 16th United Nations Day of Vesak and International Academic Conference a rousing success!
