Addressing the celebration of Ashadha Poornima, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said that the world is fighting extraordinary challenges today and lasting solutions can come from the ideals of Lord Buddha. He said, they were relevant in the past, they are relevant in the present and they will remain relevant in the future.

Mr Modi said, bright young minds are finding solutions to global problems. He pointed out that India has one of the largest start-up eco-systems. He said, he is very hopeful about the 21st century and this hope stems from the youth. He stated that if someone wants to see a great example of how hope, innovation and compassion can remove suffering, it is India's start-up sector led by the youth. He urged the youth to stay connected with the thoughts of Lord Buddha as they will motivate and show the way ahead.

Mr Modi said, government wants to  focus on connectivity to Buddhist sites. He added that the Union Cabinet announced that Kushinagar airport will be an international airport a few days back. He said, this would bring many people, pilgrims and tourists.

The Prime Minister said, the eight-fold path of Lord Buddha shows the way towards the well-being of many societies and nations. He said, it highlights the importance of compassion and kindness and the teachings of Lord Buddha celebrate simplicity both in thought and action.

He said, Buddhism teaches respect for people, poor, women, peace and non-violence. He also said, the teachings of Buddhism are the means to a sustainable planet. He hoped that the thoughts of Lord Buddha bring brightness, togetherness and brotherhood and inspire people to do good.
