Message from Hon. Balkrishna U. Naik
I feel happy to have met today Shri Siddhartha, a Dhamma – dedicated youth. His endeavor through ‘The Buddhist forum’ for preservation of ancient Buddhist monuments, mainly stupas, in different Asian countries including Bharat is commendable. They are part of our cultural heritage.
In the past, majority of Asian countries experienced the richness of the Buddhist culture and arts. As envisioned by “The Buddhist Forum” Buddhist culture and art can act as catalysts to strengthen unity amongst the Asian countries for global peace and harmony. This, I am sure , will lead to actualization of a noble concept like “Cultural Commonwealth”.
I wish Shri Siddhartha succeeds in this noble mission.
