“Meditation is the way of life that people should practice today. Staying away from alcohol will bring about a massive change in the people of the State, which is in fact need of the hour’’, said Buddhist monk, Dhammadaja Bhikku, president of the Saddhama Dipika Charitable Trust, here on Tuesday. He inaugurated the special Buddhist exhibition held at the Cultural Centre of Vijayawada.

Speaking on the occasion, Dammadaja Bhikku called out to the people to shun bad habits to live peacefully. Buddhism is the answer to all social, emotional, psychological and financial troubles that people suffer. Ethics and human values are disappearing. Meditation will decrease stress and anxiety thus prompting a healthier lifestyle, he opined.

He further said that they would request Chief Minister to ban liquor in the State on the lines of Bihar, which has taken a stand on the same. The event also marked the inauguration of ‘Vijayawada Buddha Vihara’ (VBV) by Chairman of CCV Y Harischandra Prasad. The VBV will try to propagate the teachings of Buddha and explore its presence across the district in a better way, under the leadership of Golla Narayana Rao, who is already working as secretary of the Andhra Arts Academy.

The CCV will now digitalise the relics and heritage of Buddhism in the State, under the digital India initiative, he added. The department of Language and Culture of the Andhra Pradesh has come forward to organise the programme in association with CCV to commemorate the 2560 Budhha Jayanthi celebrations. VBC secretary Sudhakar Medasani, Treasurer Ravela Chaitanya and others were present.
