Venerable Dr.Ashin Ñyāņissara (D.Litt., Ph.D.)
Today, I'm very much pleased and honoured to be invited to this multilateral dialogues seminar between Islam and Buddhism organized by the International Islamic Culture and Relations Organization of Iran. I really appreciate the vision and efforts of the organizers in holding this important seminar with the objective of exchanging views and exploring joint scientific and religious cooperation opportunities between Islam and Buddhism for world peace. I'm very happy, indeed, to meet Muslim and Buddhist brothers from Iran, Thailand and Sri Lanka here who are dedicated to the strong aspiration of promoting world peace and stability. I'm confident that frequent meetings and discussions between the leaders of different religions not only bring about their mutual friendship and understanding but also play an important role in achieving their common goal of world peace and stability.

And my particular greetings go to the high dignitaries from the three neighboring countries-Myanmar, China and India-participating in this august conference. I'm particularly happy to meet you all here today and wish you peace and happiness.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is a great honour and privilege for me to be here at this august gathering. I am particularly grateful to all collaborators for their relentless efforts in organizing this grand gathering in this Peace of the Religious Summit, which give us the opportunity of meeting like-minded, pious and devoted people who are working together towards a common ground of peace, harmony, and co-existence for all Religions.
Ladies and gentlemen,
First of all, I would like to convey my heartfelt congratulations to this grand Buddhist occasion commemorating the United Nations Day of Vesak 2014, held in the year 2638 B.E in Bai Dinh Temple of Ninh Binh, Vietnam.
