Thanks to the Youth Buddhism Team for this confidence(faith)-instilling artwork.

"To the unique credit of Buddhism it must be said that throughout its peaceful march of 2500 years no drop of blood was shed in the name of the Buddha,no mighty monarch wielded his powerful sword to propagate the Dhamma,and no conversion was made either by force or by repulsive methods.
Yet, the Buddha was the first and the greatest missionary that lived on earth."

- Narada Maha Thera, Buddhism in a Nutshell.

Happy Visakha(Vesak) Puja!
