MKG in Thailand

Yesterday afternoon was a special day for the MKG book, it reached Thailand. It was released by His Excellency, the Ambassador of India to Thailand in presence of Excellencies from 4 other countries at the Indian Cultural Centre, Bangkok. The director of the ICC – Renuka Narayanan had planned a splendid afternoon and the audience was delightful.

One thought: ever wondered why the Mahatma never visited Thailand.

His work of compassion and peace had already reached these shores via a greater soul before him. The people of Thailand had embraced the teachings of Buddha centuries ago and practice them till date. The teachings of Buddha in truth and compassion are embedded in the fabric of this nation and its people.

It was truly an honour to get the Mahatma’s book to this beautiful land.
