MPP MACLAREN INVITES EVERYONE TO VESAK DAY IN OTTAWA 2015

Equality, Peace and Reconciliation in the World

In Buddhist tradition, Vesak is a day that commemorates the birth, enlightenment and death of Gautama Buddha.

This is an opportunity to reflect on his words in this time of conflict and suffering, such as; a  generous heart, positive thoughts, kind speech leading to compassionate action are the things which renew humanity; and “may all life be delivered from suffering.” “Friendship is the only  cure for hatred, the only guarantee of peace.” The way is in the heart.  Join us in a renewed commitment to equality, peace and reconciliation in this world.

Practicing Generosity & Compassion
