For UN Vesak Day 2019

I feel honoured to send this message on the 16th United Nations Vesak Day celebrations in Vietnam.

The Buddhists all over the world celebrate the Vesak Festival with much religious fervour and enthusiasm to commemorate the important events that took place in the life of Gauthama Buddha on this day, namely the binh of Siddhartha Gautama, Siddhartha Gautamas supreme attainment of Buddhahood and the Mahiparinibbana. The Buddhasteaching which demonstrate a great vision of a superior religious sage and a humanitarian philosopher, have an eternal appeal to the human civilization.

As a country which is blessed with the noble teachings of the Buddha that have been universally accepted as a great philosophy by not only the devotees but also by the intellect across the world. Hence, it is our duty and responsibility to protect, preserve and sustain the noble teachings for the future generations.

The efforts taken by the United Nations and the Government of Vietnam to hold the United Nations Vesak Day in Hanoi are most laudable as another step to promote Buddhism in order to find peace by eliminating conflicts, malice and turmoil that disrupt the human beings. It is actually praise worthy step taken to channel the world about the spiritual bliss and content that can be attained through this great philosophy.

It is my proud privilege to the notice of this important forum that Sri Lanka seeks to obtain UNESCOsMemories of the World recognition to the Tripitaka, which is a National Heritage in Sri


Lanka. We humbly seek the support of the international Buddhist community for this virtuous effort.

I extend my best wishes to the 16th United Nations Vesak Day Celebrations in Vietnam. I am confident that this noble deed would make a significant contribution to world.
