NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Thursday that the current global situation is the most challenging as there is war, economic instability, terrorism, and religious fanaticism, adding that in such times, the teachings of Buddha are the best solution for all such problems.
“This hope, this faith, is the biggest strength on this earth. When this hope gets united, the Buddha’s Dhamma will become the world’s belief, and the Buddha’s realisation will become the belief of humanity,” he said while addressing the inaugural session of the Global Buddhist Summit here.
Remembering the Buddhist path of theory, practise, and realisation, the Prime Minister elaborated on India’s adoption of all three points in its journey in the last nine years of the NDA government.
Modi said that India has worked with dedication for the propagation of Lord Buddha’s teachings.
He mentioned the peace missions and India’s efforts in rescue work during disasters like the earthquake in Turkey.
“This emotion of 140 crore Indians is being seen, understood, and accepted by the world”, Modi said. (IANS)
