Dear brothers and sisters in global community.
 
Buddhism offers a vision that is full of hope, a hope based in the fundamental goodness of human being.
 
It teaches us to fully appreciate life and to live more vividly and consciously.
Buddhism reminds us that all things are in reality impermanent, interdependent, and empty of self.
 
It teaches us that we all have the potential to grow on wisdom, and the ability to love and it gives us the tools to do so.
 
It invites all of us --Buddhist and non-Buddhist—to make each day a new start and to become more wise, compassionate and humane in the way we live in this world.
 
The message of hope in Buddhism is that human beings have the ability to overcome greed and to come to be content.
In Buddhist prayers, we may call upon ourselves to reach our own potential:
Let none deceive another, or despise any being in any state.
 
Let none through anger or ill-will wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life her child, her only child, so with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings;
 
Radiating kindness over the entire world: Spreading upwards up the skies, and downwards to the depths; Outwards and unbounded, freed from hatred and ill-will.
