The Council for Interreligious Dialogue of the Vatican extended its heartfelt greetings and good wishes to all of those who celebrate Vesak which offers Christians an occasion to renew their friendly dialogue and close collaboration with different traditions that buddhists represent.


President of the Council for Interreligious Dialogue Jean-Louis Cardinal Tauran said that Pope Francis, at the very beginning of his ministry, reaffirmed the necessity of dialogue of friendship among followers of different religions.


The message also stated that it is urgent for both Buddhists and Christians on the basis of the genuine patrimony of our religious traditions to create a climate of peace to love, defend and promote human life.


President of the Council for Interreligious Dialogue of the Vatican also stated that in spite of these noble teachings, evil in different forms contributes to the dehumanization and this tragic situation calls upon us, Buddhists and Christians, to join hands to unmask the threats to human life.
