Congratulatory Message on the occasion of the 7th Buddhist Summit Dear Venerables, I am very pleased to know from Ven. Chandaratana in France that the 7th Buddhist Summit will be held in November 2017 in Sri Lanka, one of the leading countries of Theravada Buddhism, for the purpose of exchanging views about the development of Buddhism around the world. I also received the information that the World Buddhist Summit Organization in Japan had undertaken the enormous task to build up a Nalanda Buddhist University in Japan.

Lãnh đạo tinh thần của người Tây Tạng, Đức Đạt Lai Lạt Ma, nói với BBC ông cho rằng có thể mình sẽ là người cuối cùng giữ cương vị này. Tuy nhiên ông nói cũng là điều tốt nếu như truyền thống nhiều thế kỷ nay dừng ở "một vị Đạt Lai Lạt Ma được nhiều người tôn kính". Ông cũng cho rằng Anh quốc đã nhẹ tay với Trung Quốc quanh các vụ biểu tình mới đây vì lý do tài chính. Ông nói: "Túi tiền của họ ít nhiều đang trống rỗng, vậy nên họ quan trọng việc quan hệ chặt với Trung Quốc vì lý do tiền bạc". Đức Đạt Lai Lạt Mamới đây đã bị Đức Giáo hoàng từ chối tiếp khi ông tới tham dự một cuộc họp dành cho những người đoạt giải Nobel Hòa bình tại Rome. Vatican giải thích đây là vì "tình hình tế nhị" với Trung Quốc.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.

May the Merit and virtue,accrued from this work, adorn the Buddhas pureland,
Repay the four great kindnesses above, andrelieve the suffering of those on the three paths below,
may those who see or hear of these efforts generates Bodhi Mind, spend their lives devoted to the Buddha Dharma,
the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
