Every year in May the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue sends its annual message to Buddhists worldwide, to mark the festival we know as Buddha Day in Triratna, also known as Wesak or Vesakh.

This year’s message is entitled ‘Buddhists and Christians: Standing Together in Hopeful Resilience’.

Thank you for sharing this, Munisha. Since Easter I have been reflecting on the lasting legacy of Jesus’ teaching.

A message to the Pope… Wesak celebrates the Buddha’s Enlightenment, rather than his birth and death.

Best wishes
