June 15, Colombo: Sri Lankan Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe says Sri Lanka needs to reflect more than ever before on the profound truth preached by Buddha and commit to work in partnership to rebuild humanity through the path of Dhamma.

In a message to mark the Poson Poya Day, the Premier requested the people to reflect upon unity and harmony that is essential for building the nation.

Following is the Prime Minister's message in full:

Sri Lanka is a unique example in the history of the world, of a society that was revitalized by cultural, political and religious reforms that stemmed from the introduction of Buddhist philosophy,

Arahath Mahinda Thera undertook the mission to Sri Lanka with the clear understanding and confidence that its people would follow this sublime path of the Dhamma. Our adherence to Buddhist teachings and the way the Buddhism established in our country proved that invasions, intimidation and violence are totally unnecessary for the facts to be imprinted on people.

On this Poson day, Sri Lanka needs to reflect more than ever before on the profound truth preached by Buddha. Our commitment to work in partnership to rebuild humanity through the path of the Dhamma, will undoubtedly pay off in replacing malice which is being propagated today.

Let us live a life enriched by the true principles taught in Buddhism. Despite the prevalent religious and cultural differences, let us reflect upon unity and harmony that is essential for building our nation. May all be awakened by the Dhamma on this full moon day of Poson, the message reads.

This day of Poson is an occasion for the people of Sri Lanka to feel deep in their hearts, the true meaning of limitless tolerance and harmonious living we have learned from Arahath Mahinda. Wish you all a happy Poson celebration.
