Greetings to Russia’s Buddhists

February 12, 2021

Vladimir Putin congratulated Russia’s Buddhists on the Lunar New Year and the beginning of the White Moon.

The message reads, in part:

“This wonderful holiday, which many nationalities of our country have been celebrating for centuries, symbolises the awakening of Nature, fills the heart with joy and hope and inspires people to do good deeds.

It is notable that Russia’s Buddhist community has carefully preserved and passed their forefathers’ spiritual traditions and unique customs and mores from generation to generation, thereby enriching the cultural and social pattern of our multinational Fatherland with their indigenous and substantive educational and charitable initiatives.”
