From Embassy of The Ferderation of Russia

Dear friends,
I wish to extend my profound congratulations to all participants of the United Nations Day of Vesak-2014 – a great international event happening in Vietnam for the second time.
This is an occasion for Buddhists all over this planet to celebrate the thrice-sacred day of Vesak commemorating the Birth, Enlightenment and Passing away of the Buddha. The sacred Vesak gives this International community a chance to approach extremely rich Buddhist traditions to a greater  extend, to appreciate the Buddhist contribution to the spiritual development of human beings, and to contact with ethical, cultural and scientific aspects of this international religion.
Buddhist eternal values have for many centuries served noble goals_to unify humankind and strengthen mutual understanding and co-operation.  Hundreds of thousands of Buddhists living side by side with people of other faiths in Russia know and understand this quite well.
I believe that the organization of the United Nations Day of Vesak -2014 at the famous Bai Dinh Temple in Ninh Binh Province, Vietnam will promote the preservation and development of Buddhism unique spiritual heritage, strengthen the exchange of cultures and civilizations – the most necessary thing in this modern world. 
I would like to express the most sincere congratulations to Buddhist followers on their sacred day, and great success to this big event in Vietnam.
