On the auspicious occasion of Saga Dawa, Hon’ble Governor of Sikkim, Shri Shriniwas Patil and the First Lady Smt Rajanidevi Patil extend their warm greetings to the people of Sikkim.

In his message, Hon’ble Governor said, "Saga Dawa is the most auspicious month for adherents of Himalayan Buddhism worldwide. It is believed that good deeds and prayers are multiplied a thousand fold during this month. However, the fifteenth day of the month is special as Sakyamuni was born, attained enlightenment and stepped into parinirvana on this day. Lord Buddha’s profound teachings of equality, love, kindness and tolerance are of increasing relevance in the present times.

On this auspicious day, I urge my fellow Sikkimese to remain committed to follow Buddha’s teachings about living a noble life, being kind and compassionate to all sentient beings and to devote themselves to the path of truth and righteousness transcending caste, creed, gender, religion and nationality.”

P.S to Governor
