From Prof. Dr. Lin, Tsong Ming, Taiwan

On the auspicious occasion of the celebration of United Nations Day of Vesak 2014 in Vietnam, I wish to express the best blessing to all of us the disciples, followers of the Lord of Buddha on behalf of the faculty and students of Nanhua University found by Fo Guang Shan Monastery.
I would like to convey my sincere appreciation and congratulation to National Vietnam Buddhist Sangha (NVBS) in collaboration with the International Council of the UNITED NATIONS Day of Vesak (ICUNDV) to organize an international conference tilled “Buddhist Contribution to Achieve the UN Millennium Development Goals”.
The ultimate goal of Buddhasasana is the disengagement of the suffering of existence. The core teaching of Buddhist education also fosters a sense of compassion, tolerance and respect toward other living beings. The moral conduct will lead to refrain from exploitation both of others and of one’s self and mutual respect. Since the right attitude in Buddhism is closely connected with understanding and knowledge which is founded on wisdom, this conference will provide and exchange a deeper look to see what outlook the religion has on man and the world and how it functions.
I am sure that these symposiums will provide a meaningful platform to exchange ideas and knowledge theoretically, practically and instrumentally contributing to global issues and toward the peace and Happiness of humanity. Therefore, as the leader of Nanhua University, a Buddhist Wisdom based institution of higher learning, I pledge my full support with every one of you in this meaningful endeavor toward the real peace and happiness of individuals, societies, regions and the world regardless of races, nationalities and personal belief in making the world a better place to live for everyone.
Yours sincerely in Dhamma 
Prof. Dr. Lin, Tsong-Ming President, Nanhua University 2014/03/18
