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

Hon’ble Governor said, “ Among the most sacred of festivals in Sikkim, we celebrate Drukpa Tsheshi, with utmost reverence to mark the preaching of four Noble Truths by Lord Buddha to his first five disciples at Sarnath. ‘Dharma Chakra Pravartana’, as this auspicious event is popularly known, Lord Buddha set the Wheel of Dharma in motion. Thus, mankind was shown the principal human values of non violence, love and compassion. Buddha’s middle path and approach of rational self enquiry, discipline and harmony shall continue to guide us in our journey called life and steer our society towards peace and happiness, the much needed relief to humankind today.

On this day, let us all pray and join hands to preserve our unique tradition of social harmony through religious and spiritual pursuit. May Sakyamuni’s teachings show us the right path in our collective quest of peace and harmony among all sentient beings.”

PRO to Governor
