NEW DELHI: President Ram Nath Kovind greeted citizens Tuesday on the eve of Buda Purnima and prayed for the country to successfully emerge from the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are facing an unprecedented crisis in the form of a Covid-19 pandemic. At this auspicious festival of Buddha Purnima, I pray that through our solidarity and collective resolve, we can successfully emerge from this pandemic and continue to move steadily towards the well-being of the people in general, “he said.
In his message on the eve of Buddha Purnima, Kovind said that Lord Buddha’s teachings lead us to the path of freedom from suffering and misery.
He taught people to refrain from violence and injustice, and this same mantra has motivated us for centuries to become ideal human beings, the president said.
The ideals of non-violence, peace, compassion and service to humanity embodied in the life of Lord Buddha and his timeless teachings have profoundly influenced the development of human civilization around the world, Kovind said.
“On the auspicious occasion of Buddha Purnima, I extend my best wishes to all fellow citizens and followers of Lord Buddha throughout the world,” he said.
