MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
Mikhail Mishustin congratulated the Buddhists of Russia on the Sagaalgan holiday.
“For many centuries, the Sagaalgan holiday has marked the beginning of the New Year according to the lunar calendar, symbolizing the arrival of spring. For believers, the time is coming for good deeds, undertakings, peace and prosperity. For more than two and a half centuries, the Russian sangha has been actively participating in the life of our country, doing serious work to maintain interfaith and interethnic dialogue. It is important that you are doing a lot to preserve Buddhist customs, traditions of oriental medicine, and develop religious education. And you also introduce the younger generation to the richest cultural heritage, implement educational and charitable projects, ”the telegram reads in particular.
