2018 Wesak Day Greetings

Building a Tolerant, Understanding, Harmonious Society

Lord Buddha advocated compassion. With great compassion and love as the cornerstone, our minds are broadened with tolerance as its connotations. Gaining or losing one’s intent, leave all our troubles and pains behind us, and smile and face everything in the world.

This year’s Wesak Day coincides with the fasting period of our Muslim compatriots. Whether it is Buddhism or Islam, we are taught and persuaded to perform good deeds and purify our hearts. To replace grievances with tolerance, and disgust with understanding, our society will certainly be more progressive and harmonious, and our lives will be fulfilling.

On this solemn and tranquil day, we remember and practise the teachings of the Lord Buddha: compassion and tolerance. Let us work hand-in-hand to create harmony and resolve differences in society while working together for harmony, stability and prosperity in Malaysia.

Dato’ Sri Liow Tiong Lai
