PM Modi stated that Buddhism teaches respect for people, for the poor, for the women, and respect for peace and non-violence.

“The eight-fold path of Lord Buddha shows the way towards the well-being of many societies and nations. It highlights the importance of compassion and kindness. The teachings of Lord Buddha celebrate simplicity both in thought and action,” he said.

He further brought notice to the Kushinagar airport announcement stating that it will bring many people, pilgrims, and tourists. On Asadha Poornima, PM Modi said that the solutions for facing the tough days can be found in the teachings of Lord Buddha.

“Today the world fights extra-ordinary challenges. To these challenges, lasting solutions can come from the ideals of Lord Buddha. They were relevant in the past. They are relevant in the present. And, they will remain relevant in the future,” he said.

PM Modi also had a message for the youth of the country.

“I would urge my young friends, to also stay connected with the thoughts of Lord Buddha. They will motivate and show the way ahead,” Modi said.

He concluded his message with the hope that Lord Buddha’s blessings inspire us to do good.
