The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka

Press Release

The Muslim Council of Sri Lanka wishes our Buddhist brethren peace and contentment on the auspicious day of Buddha Jayanthi (Vesak) where millions around the world follow the teachings of the Buddha and commemorate the birth, attainment of enlightenment and the passing away of the Buddha.

Vesak”, on the Day of the Full Moon in the month of May, is the most sacred day to millions of Buddhists around the world. It was on the Day of Vesak two and a half millennia ago, in the year 623 B.C., that the Buddha was born. It was also on the Day of Vesak that the Buddha attained enlightenment, and it was on the Day of Vesak that the Buddha in his eightieth year passed away.

We pray for peace and prosperity for all Sri Lankans and to get over the difficult social and economic crises that our country is facing.

We call upon all Sri Lankans to support the recovery efforts and austerity measures of the Government that may be necessary in the immediate term, reduce consumption to the minimum and help those in need with food and other basic essentials in keeping with the traditions of Vesak and the spirit of giving taught by all faiths practiced in Sri Lanka.
