In a world that is constantly pursuing materialistic ambitions and immersed in a competitive and fast-paced atmosphere, Lord Buddha showed a path to happiness that transcends contemporary means. By directing the focus towards the mind and eliminating cravings and agitations, Lord Buddha provided a way to bring eternal peace to all, without requiring any material possessions.
As we commemorate the birth, enlightenment, and passing of Lord Buddha, we shall reflect on his teachings and strive to incorporate them into our lives. Let us extend love and compassion to all beings and work towards creating a fairer and more peaceful world. We wish you a happy Vesak Day from St. Anne's College.
