Putin Greeted Russian Buddhists on the Lunar New Year

______________________________

President V V Putin greeted Russian Buddhists on the coming of the Lunar New Year and the beginning of the White month. The Kremlin website noted:

Drawing on the centuries-old historical, cultural, and spiritual traditions of their ancestors, Russian Buddhists celebrate this significant event widely. This holiday symbolises the renewal of man and nature, so, it’s common to sum up the year, sincerely wish each other health, and ask for fulfilment of one’s desires. People care for their loved ones and give alms to the needy. It’s important for the Buddhist community to participate actively in the life of our country, to strengthen their interaction with state and public organisations, to give much care to educating young people, and to implement popular charitable and educational initiatives. Such fruitful work deserves the deepest respect. I wish that the New Year would be successful and prosperous for Buddhist people.
