CONGRATULATORY  MESSAGE
 
For UN Vesak Day 2019



Greetings of peace and compassion from Gosung Monastery. It is my great pleasure to write a remark on the UN Day of Vesak, three sacred days celebrating the Birth, Enlightenment and Passing away of Buddha Gautama. On behalf of Korean Buddhists and URI community, I would like to extend my sincere congratulations to people of Vietnam especially to you regarding excellent leadership to prepare and manage the great event of UNDV in 2019. I remember and appreciate that Vietnam hosted the UNDV celebrations at the National Convention Center, Hanoi in 2008 and Bai Dinh International Convention Center, Ninh Binh Province in 2014.

Moreover, the 16th UNDV is hosted in Vietnam again by the National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (NVBS), to be held at the Tam Chuc International Buddhist Convention Center in Ha Nam Province, May 2019. I believe that you and your people of the country have been very proud of it.

As I have always said at ICDV, this event should be appreciated and celebrated by all people around globe because Sakyamuni Buddha has been the greatest teacher in human history beyond personal religious cultural backgrounds and social status. His noble teachings of wisdom and compassion have awakened and guided people for living in truth and morality which is not only good for an individual but also for all human beings. The theme of this year events is “Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societies.” I believe that it is good to foster co-operation among Buddhist communities and institutions, and to develop Buddhist solutions to global crises. It seems very appropriate and to bring attention and expectation from people around world, considering that leadership has been so needed to cultivate world peace as well as in societies.
