Remarks by Ambassador Ruchira Kamboj on the occasion of Parinirvana/Buddha Purnima – 26 May 2021


          A great story of an end and a beginning took place today in Kushinagar, India, several years ago. The story of Siddartha Gautama, the Buddha, who left his physical form and attained nirvana.

          I find today a wonderful opportunity for reflection - for a deeper look into the lives we wish to craft for ourselves.  Cliche perhaps, but useful nevertheless.

          Furthermore, in times of such uncertainty, in a world we may not recognise, we are reminded of Karma - a philosophy rooted in both Buddhism and Hinduism. The notion of service and compassion to others is often washed over the haste of life. It is something we have all heard countless times and yet perhaps, still forget. But if true healing is to come, empathy is our only hope. And I believe in this possibility, as my prayer and guide.

          So on this auspicious day, I wish all of you a blessed Dhue Chen Nga Zom!

Tashi Delek!
