CONGRATULATORMESSAGE
 
For UN Vesak Day 2019



I am greatly honored to extend my congratulatory message to the 16th United Nations Day of Vesak Celebrations and the International Buddhist Conference. I would like to offer sincere congratulations to Vietnamese Buddhist Sangha and all Vietnamese Buddhists for organizing and hosting this great grand event to reflect the birth, the enlightenment and the passing away of the Buddha.

This year the 16th anniversary of United Nations Day of Vesak examines the theme of Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership
& Shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societies. This theme is relevant to contemporary challenges of poverty, the environment and social wellness. The Buddha taught us the Dhamma which gives us the opportunity to make the world better place. The Day of Vesak is very important not only for Buddhist but for all humanity as well because the Dhamma taught by the Buddha is for all and the Buddha himself is the example of a leader for the societies.

TheBuddhasteachingsareofcrucialimportanttotodaysocieties. The threefold teachings; Dana, Sila, Bhavana are unique message of the Buddha for sustainable societies. Dana_ giving, sharing or generosity is the first perfection of Bodhisatta (bidhisatva) in Pali literatures. The core idea of Dana is to share what we have with others, to make the world prosperous. It is based on compassion, sympathy and positive attitude towards others. The Sila is if the human societies can practice, to establish peaceful, harmless and violence-free societies. The practice of Sila with compassion toward all living beings and environment brings peace and happiness to individuals, to societies, to the whole humankind.The Bhavana if one can practise, is for ones inner peace and happiness that contributes positive attitudes towards others and resulted in building peaceful societies and to completely remove all kinds of negativities and mental defilements.

By practicing and applying all the teachings to himself, the Buddha showed the path of peace, happiness, and harmony to us. The Buddha, The Dhamma and the unity of the Sangha is for the happiness of many, for the welfare of many.

In conclusion, let me offer my prayers and wish the 16th United Nations Day of Vesak and International Buddhist Conference success and bring peace to create a better world.
