Buddha's teachings, a mean to resolve all disputes - President

May 17, 2011 2:07:35 AM - news.lk

H.E.president_mahinda1The teachings of the Buddha help us to bring to the world the means of resolving all disputes that arise from unbridled desire. Thus it behoves upon us to give to the world the path to peace and consolation from these great teachings of the Samma Sambuddhatva or Great Enlightenment of the Buddha, 2600 years ago, President Mahinda Rajapaksa said.
"On this Vesak festival it should be our determination to take refuge in the teachings of the Buddha, and through the proper observation of the teachings of Buddhism make this 2600 Samma Sambuddhatva  Jayanthi meaningful to all people," said President Rajapaksa in his Vesak message.
