"Best and the Brightest from 1964"
THE MOST HAPPY OCCURANCES
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
A blessed Vesak to all batch mates and their families.
Nirmali and Narme Wickremesinghe

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 .
Wishing all my Batchmates a very happy and enjoyable Vesak day.
