“Sakyamuni Buddha in his teachings emphasised the value of peace and mutual living. In suttas in Majjima Nikaya and also in Karaneeya Metta Sutta, the Buddha has taught the importance of peace and harmony. Not only in Buddhist philosophy also in the teachings of other faiths, the religious leaders has preached to live in harmony. It is important to take this message to the next generations” Dr. Damenda Porage said in the meeting.
