The twentieth century, and in particular our generation has, as a result often lived at edge of dangers.
As we celebrate this year’s International Buddhist Day, I invite everybody to redouble our efforts to ensure comprehensive peace everywhere for everyone. Let us therefore continue recognizing, celebrating, respecting and appreciating our unity in diversity; then individual peace, domestic peace, nation peace, reginal and global peace will be guaranteed for all of us.
I wish everybody a happy Fifth International Buddhist Day. May all sentient beings be well, happy, and peaceful.
