On   the   auspicious   occasion   of ‘‘Buddha   Purnima’’,   I extend   my   warm   and   best   wishes   to   all   the   people   of Andaman and Nicobar Islands.

Mahatma ‘‘Buddha’’ spent his whole life in search of enlightenment and knowledge of the self. His teachings inspire us to maintain peace, love and mutual brotherhood in the society. Let us all endeavor to embibe the teachings of Mahatma Buddha in our lives.

On this occasion, I wish for prosperity and happiness in the life of every Islander and our enchanting Islands may always spear ahead on the path of progress.
