For UN Vesak Day 2019

It is a great honor for me to convey best wishes and warmest greetings from all the Buddhist people of the Republic of Armenia to the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha, to the people of Vietnam and to all Buddhists as well as to all the people of good will worldwide with the thrice-sacred day of Vesak.

The theme of this conference devoted to Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societies is very timely.

Global Leadership is defined as leading people who are based in multiple regions of the world. Global leaders have to engage very diverse groups of stakeholders and colleagues to get things done. They lead people across distance, cultures, time zones and in complex organizational structures. Global leaders need to create a good understanding of where it adds value to be global and where it is better to be local.

Being a great Global Leader is difficult indeed but it can make big difference. The idealized Global Leader is a person who is aware of the wider world, respects and values diversity, has an understanding of how the world works: socially, culturally, technologically, environmentally, economically and politically. He or she participates in activities, which make the world a more sustainable place and takes responsibility for ones own actions. In this sense such Global Leader is a person who acts according to the teaching of the Blessed One, regardless of his or her faith, place of living and other important” things.

On a practical level, Global Leadership provides a concepts that can create bridges between the work of internationalization and


multicultural education, harmonious families, sustainable societies yet most important goal is to help people to become happier.

Taking into account the definition and main criteria of Global Leadership, it is obvious that Buddha Dhamma can give a lot as methodologically as well as ethically to teach the people to become good global leader.

Humankind will only benefit if the basic Buddhist regulations on behavior - based on the absence of greed, hatred and ignorance
- become known to as many people as possible and are taken as guidance to action.

At present, as in ancient times, the Supreme Sangha is doing much for the ideas of The Enlightened One and His approach to reality to be spread among intelligent people, so that they benefit by awakening kindness, mercy, and peace in their minds.

From this point of view, what is being done to achieve this goal during the conference with the invaluable assistance of the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and the people of Vietnam is difficult to overestimate.

I wish this conference to proceed with utmost success and fulfillment of all aims.

May the Buddhas teaching illuminate the way of all of us for peace and welfare of all beings!
