The ideals of truth, non-violence, brotherhood and harmony among all sentient beings has been the guiding light for peaceful coexistence of mankind. It has remained in the core of our national identity and has shaped our destiny as a country over centuries.

May the teachings and ideals of Lord Buddha  remain the guiding force in our lives  till eternity. Let us pray together on this auspicious day and strive forward  collectively on the path of truth, righteousness and non violence, transcending beyond caste creed, gender, religion and nationality.”
