CONGRATULATORMESSAGE
 
For UN Vesak Day 2019



On behalf of the Buddhist Union of Finland we want to send all the best wishes and warm greetings to organizers and participants of the thrice sacred Vesak celebration. It is an honour to be able to send these words of good wishes to Buddhists from all over the world.

The theme for 2019 Vesak is the Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societies. It is quite clear that we need to work together on an interreligious level in order to have power to maintain and spread peace, harmony and sustainable development in any society. If we think of proportions, Buddhism in Finland is a minor religion, about 1,8% of the 5,5 million population. The Buddhist Union of Finland works together with different cooperation organisations, like Forum for Culture and Religion Fokus and National Forum for Cooperation of Religions (CORE Forum), and is one of the team that is working to maintain and develop harmony and equality in society. We are convinced that the Buddhist values and ethics, practice of loving kindness and ethical vows, are a precious tool in the work for a better world for all living beings.

To celebrate together the sacred day of Vesak will contribute to mutual understanding and loving-kindness in all human relationships. The Buddhist Union of Finland sends best wishes for a successful Vesak celebration.
May all living beings be happy!
Irma Rinne,
Chairperson
Buddhist Union of Finland
