JVP has appealed to the masses in Sri Lanka to resolve on this Wesak Day to distance themselves from all sorts of prejudices and fanaticism, to dedicate themselves to the creation of a society where they could live according to the teaching of Lord Buddha, identify correctly the obstacles that are placed to prevent them from reaching such a society and cast them aside.

JVP made this appeal in its Vesak Day message. The message said:

“Wesak Poya Day, the day Buddhists all over the world accept as the day in which Prince Siddhartha’s Birth, His Enlightenment and Lord Buddha’s Nirvana took place is an important day to Buddhists all over the world. It is the teaching of Lord Buddha that gave the world a series of policies that include cooperation, working for reconciliation and righteousness to maintain a virtuous society.

However, Wesak Day 2019 dawns when the Sri Lankan society is passing through a very crucial stage. It is a moment a few extremists who have laid aside the essence of Lord Buddha’s teaching are attempting to drag the Sri Lankan society towards barbarism despite the destruction created by insane religious extremism is before the very eyes.

At such a moment the Sri Lankan society should be awakened to the need to perceive the teaching of Lord Buddha and its essence.

What the rulers who deceive the masses and religious leaders by pretending to protect Lord Buddha’s teaching really do is the opposite to the essence of Buddhist teaching as their moves drag the society towards crime, fraud, corruption and immoral acts. It is in such an environment that Sri Lanka is seen not as an ‘island of Dhamma’ but is becoming a land of crime day by day.

We wish that the Buddhist masses in Sri Lanka resolve on this Wesak Day to distance themselves from all sorts of prejudices and fanaticism, to dedicate themselves to the creation of a society where they could live according to the teaching of Lord Buddha, identify correctly the obstacles that are placed to prevent them from reaching such a society and cast them aside.
