After the three intellectual bells ringing to welcome the monks reaching the celebration stage, Reverend Thich Chon Tri, head of ceremony board, made speech on proclaiming the reasons, producing the program and guests attending the ceremony. Subsequently, the whole multitude spent a minute of silence to commemorate the martyrs and soldiers who had sacrificed for peace and happiness of all people.

At the ceremony, monk Thich Minh Chon (vice-chairman of TW Dharma Board – Chairman of HCM city Dharma Board), on behalf of HCM city Head of BSV read the message of Buddha’s birthday in 2016 from Deputy Chairman of Vietnamese Buddhist Sangha Thich Pho Tue. In the message, he emphasized: “I hope all monks and Vietnamese Buddhists who appreciate the Buddha, with wishes and responsibility, should do the most practical actions to protect the environment for sustainability as well as adapt to climate change which is threatening our own lives.”

In the worshipers’ solemnity and peace, the Buddhist ritual officially commenced. The whole multitude paid merciful attention to the rituals of services to welcome Buddha’s appearance in this world.

Ending the ceremony, monks and Buddhists released balloons, wishing for peace and freedom to all people in the world.
