Modi under the shade of Bodh Tree

narendra-modi-55ea9690ced43_exlstHindu philosophy was one of the greatest beneficiaries of the advent and the teachings of the Lord Buddha. Gautama Buddha and Lord Krishna have taught the world so much as their teachings inspired the values and ideals, said Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Their message was about establishing Dharma. Buddha gave the 8-fold path and the Panchsheel while Krishna gave lessons on Karma Yoga. “ We are meeting in Bodh Gaya, a land that has a distinctive place. This is the land of enlightenment. Bodh Gaya got Siddhartha but what Bodh Gaya gave to the world was Lord Buddha, the epitome of knowledge, peace and compassion,” he said. Therefore the ideal venue for a dialogue on Janmashtami and the special day of Teachers’ Day makes this unique, he said. It was my great privilege to have participated in the Inaugural function of the first International Hindu Buddhist Initiative on “Conflict Avoidance and Environmental Consciousness” hosted by the Vivekananda International Foundation and Tokyo Foundation with the support of the International Buddhist Confederation at Delhi.
