Secretary-General's message on the Day of Vesak
I extend best wishes to all celebrating Vesak, a sacred occasion to millions around the world.
On this date marking the birth, enlightenment and passing of the Buddha, all of us, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike, can reflect on his life and draw inspiration from his teachings.
In a time of growing intolerance and inequality, the Buddha's message of non-violence and service to others is more relevant than ever.
On the Day of Vesak, let us renew our commitment to building a world of peace and dignity for all.
