PM says, India has shown that it can face even most difficult challenge following path of Buddha

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said Lord Buddha is all the more relevant in today’s times of Corona pandemic. He said, India has shown that how we can face even the most difficult challenge by following the path of the Buddha. Sharing his message at the Ashadha Purnima-Dhamma Chakra Day programme virtually this morning, Mr Modi said, entire world is moving in solidarity following the teachings of Lord Buddha. He said, in this, ‘care with prayer’ initiative of the International Buddhist Confederation is praiseworthy.

 

The Prime Minister said harmony between our mind, speech and resolve and between our action and effort can guide us away from pain and towards happiness. He said, it inspires us to work for general welfare during good times and gives us strength to face difficult times. Mr Modi said, Lord Buddha gave us eight-fold path to achieve this harmony. The Prime Minister said, when Buddha, forged in the fire of sacrifice and endurance, speaks, then these are not mere words but an entire cycle of ‘Dhamm’ begins and the knowledge flowing from him become synonymous with welfare of the world. He said, that is why today he has followers all over the world.

 

Quoting ‘Dhamm Pada’, Mr Modi remarked that enmity does not quell enmity. Rather, enmity is calmed with love and by a big heart. He said, in times of tragedy, the world has felt this power of love and harmony. The Prime Minister said, as this knowledge of Buddha, this experience of humanity gets enriched, the world will touch new heights of success and prosperity.
