Vesak 2019 covered by international media

The 16th United Nations (UN) Day of Vesak, which just concluded at the Tam Chuc Buddhist Cultural Centre, Ha Nam province, has been given wide coverage by international media.

An article on Hong Kong's Buddhistdoor Global website on Tuesday said the event's five forums discussed mindful leadership for sustainable peace; Buddhist approaches to harmonious families, healthcare, and sustainable societies; Buddhist approaches to global education in ethics; the Fourth Industrial Revolution and Buddhism; and Buddhist approaches to responsible consumption and sustainable development.

The Asia News Network website posted a story on UN Vesak Day 2019, highlighting the opinions of representatives of different countries on the way Buddhism has adapted to Industry 4.0 and used digitization to preserve Buddhist values and promote Buddhism.

This is the third time Vietnam has hosted a Vesak celebration. The two previous were in 2008 and 2014.
