For UN Vesak Day 2019

I am extremely delighted and rather overwhelmed with joy to know that Vietnam is going to organize 16th United Nations Day of Vesak (UNDV) celebration in the month of May 2019. In fact this is the third time that Vietnam is going to organize such a gigantic celebration of world Buddhism. I was fortunate enough to be able to participate in the last two UNDV celebrations held in Vietnam in 2008 and 2014. Out of last fifteen UNDV celebrations I am also very much fortunate enough to participate for 12 times.

I am also happy to note that the theme of the UNDV celebration and Academic conference has been chosen to be “Buddhist Approach to Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Sustainable Societies. I think the theme is rightly chosen in the present day context of the world. United Nations have targeted 16 SDGs to be fulfilled by 2030. If every nation takes steps properly to fulfill this target sustainable societies fulfilling the basic needs of the people will definitely come out.

Buddhists have the extra responsibilities to work for the UN as UN has declared Vesak Day to show respect to the birth , enlightenment and passing away of The Buddha. Our approach to the global leadership must be based on the sharing the responsibilities with the world leaders for the implementation of sustainable societies. The Buddha advised us to preach his teachings which are welfare in the beginning , welfare in the middle and welfare at the end. As such Buddhist leaders must apply their intellect so that sustainable and peaceful societies are obtained. Thus Buddhist leaders must also be committed to work for sustainable peace and stability in the human societies.

Buddhist leaders of the world will definitely boost up themselves with this type of historic celebration through international Buddhist conferences. For this reason I thank and congratulate the Vietnam Buddhist Sangha and the support of Vietnam Government for organizing such important Vesak Day Celebration in conformity with UN for three times not only for the welfare of Buddhists and Buddhism but also for the welfare of humanity as a whole. Buddhists cherish in their minds that human beings be free from all sufferings, stresses, tensions, fear and oppressions through Buddhas universal saying “ Let all beings be happy.
