  1. THE MOST HAPPY OCCURANCES

    Buddhan Uppado
    Sukho saddhamma desena
    Sakhalin sangassa samaggi
    Sammagganam tapo sukho

    Happy is the birth of Buddhas,
    Happy is the teaching of Saddhamma
    Happy is the unity of Sangha,
    Happy is the discipline of the United ones
    (Dhammapada ya 194)

    A quotation from Late Sri Nehru

    IN THIS WORLD OF STORM
    STRIFE,HATRED AND VIOLENCE,
    THE MESSAGE OF THE BUDDHA
    SHINES LIKE A RADIANT SUN

    PERHAPS AT NO TIME
    WAS THAT MESSAGE
    MORE NEEDED THAN
    IN THE WORLD OF BOMBS
    OF ATOMIC AND HYDROGEN

    THE THOUSAND FIVE HUNDRED OR MORE YEARS,
    HAVE ADDED TO THE VITALITY & TRUTH OF THAT MESSAGE
    LET US REMEMBER THAT IMMORTAL MESSAGE
    AND TRY TO FASHION OUR THOUGHTS
    AND ACTIONS, IN THE LIGHT OF THAT TEACHING

    WE MAY FACE WITH EQUANIMITY,
    EVEN THE TERRORS OF THE BOMBS
    AND HELP A LITTLE IN PROMOTING
    RIGHT THINKING AND RIGHT ACTION

  5. Peace and Love to ALL …. This Vesak Season .

    Ariya– Many thanks for the wonderful lesson from the Dhammapada and the quotation from the great man Nehru .
    At no time in our lives, did these words ring true .. and Vesak came at the right time .

    Was the message of Love and Peace from The Buddha lost in Srilanka ? – -I wonder …..

    I hope the people of Lanka know this – -seems like they have been in the dark …. for too, too long …

    Let this Vesak bring Light into their Souls , Peace to their Minds and Love into their Hearts .

    Deepthie .
