Congratulations to Russia’s Buddhists

February 7, 2016

Vladimir Putin congratulated Russia’s Buddhists on the Lunar New Year.

The President said, in particular, in his message:

“This joyous celebration symbolises the renewal of people and nature and fills hearts with faith, hope, and a desire for harmony and purity.

Today, Russia’s Buddhists have broad new opportunities for renewal and development of their ancestors’ religious, spiritual and moral traditions, customs and cultures. Buddhist organisations carry out multifaceted educational and charity work, work towards strengthening family values and educating young people, and make a big contribution to preserving peace, harmony and mutual understanding in society and developing dialogue between faiths and peoples.”
