CONGRATULATORY  MESSAGE
 
For UN Vesak Day 2019



It gives me pleasure to send my best wishes from Dhamma Gavest Meditation Centre, New Zealand, and wish to convey my warm congratulations for organizing the Sixteenth Anniversary Celebrations by the United Nations, of Vesak Day, in the middle of May 2019 in Vietnam.

I wish to express my sincere appreciation towards the United Nations, being a most important and influential organisation in the world, for taking the decision to celebrate this most significant day of Vesak related Ute Supreme Buddhas life.

Further, I am of course most grateful for the opportunity to attend the Vesak Day Celebrations in person, and to be a witness to, and participant in this wonderful occasion related to the life of the Supreme Buddha who tirelessly taught the world about peace.

Also, I understand that Buddhist leaders and members from many countries of the world will be represented at the celebrations, and that it will be a most important opportunity to discuss the currently significant matters which would enable the Dhamma to flourish successfully, making a way for true peace in the modem world.

It is truly an apparent fact that the number of those embracing the Buddhas teaching is currently increasing in the world. The reason for this is that the teaching of the Buddha is harmless and peaceful, encouraging those who practice it to find the truth independently, without relying on others.

It is also greatly inspiring to know that the celebrations will provide a wonderful opportunity for Buddhists from different traditions and cultures throughout the world to discuss how to make this peaceful teaching known to all who may wish to practice

it in their lives. Also to address many topical issues - in particular practical ways to encourage peace and harmony in the modern world, and to address the issues of conservation and preservation of our most precious environment.

Again I congratulate you for providing such an inspiring and wonderful opportunity to celebrate the Buddhas life, and send you my best wishes for successful Vesak Day Celebration. May we all look forward to a peaceful and harmonious future of Dhamma practice, with the power of the Noble Triple Gem!
