Summit Wraps Up in Cambodia
Issued: 08 December 2002
Religious and spiritual leaders from 16 countries congregated in the World Buddhist Summit in Cambodia's capital, Phnom Pehn, urging world leaders to cease using violence to solve global tension.
More than 17,000 spiritual leaders attended the three-day summit which concentrated on the Buddha's teachings of "to forgive, forget and to stop the chain of revenge" against the violence of terrorism as well as the potential war in Iraq.
Despite the absence of Dalai Lama, one of the most important spiritual leaders of the world who is still in under control of China, the summit participants urged fellow Buddhists to strengthen their unity.
The focal point of this three-day summit was to promote the Buddha's teaching in an easily understood manner while hoping that it would make the world peace come true someday.
