September 26, 2023


Most Excellent. Arayawango has performed daily dhamma routines, commencing the day by leading Sangha walking for morning alms in front of Marshall House, a designated rains-retreat residence, and allowing lay devotees to offer Sangha dana. as well as the Dhamma. All the Dhamma discourses are also transmitted live on the YouTube channel “Arayawangso” so that Buddhists and those interested in Buddhism can learn and practice dhamma together out of Taxila. 

The Mertis and Blessings In Pakistan

Merits for all living things.Pakistan’s Excellence in Dedication to All Beings Seven consecutive days between August 24 and August 30, 2022. In Taxila, Most Ven Arayawangso hosted the Sangha-dana to bestow merits on ancestors and all creatures. Gandhara, the Kushan, and all dynasties in all previous eras, those who are afflicted will be alleviated and liberated from affliction.

“I will offer data on behalf of their relatives from all realms, at all times, to all beings who have lived and are living in this realm and are considered my relatives; may they all attain and enjoy the merits fully realized during my rains-retreat stay in Taxila.”

A drizzle shortly follows, serving as a sign of good fortune for all who benefited from the Dana bestowed by the MV Arayawangso.

Daily Dhamma Routines in Taxila

Several times, optimism motivates us to pursue our objective. Oftentimes, optimism makes us weary and disheartened because we have yet to reach our destination. Sometimes, we appreciate optimism, while we tire of it other times.

Optimism is neither the cause of happiness nor unhappiness. The underlying cause is the unrealistic need and desire, which can become intolerable pressure when unmet. Disappointment, separation from loved ones, and coming into contact with undesirables all result in suffering. Understanding this, a prudent man should decide what he can achieve with his knowledge and skills. Hope does not corrupt anyone if it does not originate from Dhamma-distorted notions.

Hope is a virtue when it transforms into contentment and encourages one to take the correct action by exerting the necessary effort and maintaining a focused mind. We will pay deliberate attention, with wisdom, leading to the creation of Dhamma power for life development; we will cultivate the grit to advance steadily along the path; we will be willing to sacrifice everything, including our lives; and we will be receptive to the teachings of the Buddha.

Similar to our Perfectly Self-Awakened One, who spent a hundred thousand eons (kappa) and four incalculably (asankheyya) searching for the victor until hope is realized and transformed into a priceless aspiration. The discovery of remnants of evidence from multiple periods indicated that virtually every Bhodhisatta had walked on this land of Taxila.Royal Thai Embassy Islamabad, Pakistan 

Saturday morning, 6th August 2565 BE/ 2022.

Chakkidrid Krachaiwong, His Excellency. The Ambassador of Thailand to Pakistan invited Most Venerable Arayawango and the Sangha, consisting of six monks and one novice, to the Royal Thai Embassy to receive alms, sangha-dana, and deliver a dhamma discourse. The city of Islamabad. Pakistan. The morning was blessed for everyone in attendance. Dhamma Diary: Optimism, Realism, and Hope

Saturday morning, September 17, 2565, BE, at 8 a.m. On the invitation of His Excellency Vice Admiral Mohan Wijewickrama, Most Venerable Arayawangso visited the Sri Lankan residence. The Sri Lankan High Commissioner to Pakistan and his consort. Madame Nishani Wijewickrama. to perform chanting, to deliver Dhamma discourse, and to receive Sangha-Dana offerings so that the Sri Lankan community in Pakistan would be blessed. In this instance. H.E. ChakkridKrachaiwong, Mr. In addition to the Thai Ambassador to Pakistan and his consort, officers of the Sri Lankan Embassy and Thai supporters were also in attendance.

Throughout the two-hour meeting. The Most Venerable Aray-awangso delivered a dhamma discourse that led to the practice of the foundation of mindfulness (Satipattana). The High Commissioner later stated that a dhamma discourse like the one delivered today has never occurred in this Islamic country.

When H.E.Vice Adm. Mohan and his spouse met Most Venerable for the first time on September 7, 2565, BCE, they invited Most Venerable to their residence to receive the sangha-dana offering. And Mrs. Nishani’s firm faith and determination to study the Dhamma. She respectfully asked the Most Venerable to deliver a dhamma discourse so that the Embassy and the people of Sri Lanka would be highly blessed.

When the dhamma discourse concluded, His Excellency and Mrs. Nishani listened to and practiced Dhamma with determination, and they experienced profound pleasure and delight (piti). Vice Admiral Mohan was observed in Samadhi for a considerable time.

Mrs. Nishani believed she began learning dhamma approximately fifteen years ago. Yet. She has never had the opportunity to meet genuine, experienced masters and learn Dhamma as profoundly and insightfully as she did from Most Ven, allowing her to develop a detailed step-by-step practice. In addition, due to the numerous responsibilities that occupy her daily schedule, it is difficult for her to advance in the trial. This is her initial time learning and practicing true dhamma. For her benefit. It was incredible. She was learning the Dhamma of the Lord Buddha in an Islamic country, a rare occurrence. This prompts her to remember that she must pay more attention to die practice and to recall the final comment made by MV. “Do not expect any results from your practice; continue to practice consistently.” When the conditions are favorable, the result will manifest.

The Dhamma discourse concluded with blessings of the highest order. Most Venerable Arayawangso instructed everyone in the audience to share and disseminate their merits to humanity, the poor, the victims of disasters and crises in Pakistan, and the people of Sri Lanka so they may be free from suffering, illness, and harm.

From this fortunate moment onwards. I invite you all to participate in the benediction and appreciation of merits.

Raja Tridiv Roy: A Buddhist Raja in Pakistan

When Most Venerable Arayawangso accepted my invitation to receive an alms offering at my home in Islamabad on August 8, 2022, it was a most auspicious occasion for me, Rajkumari TroyaRoy, and my family.

According to Buddhism, nothing occurs by accident. My meeting with Most Venerable at the home of Mr. Imran Schauket led to this particular joyful occasion.

In that era. Most Venerable allowed me to include the narrative of my deceased father. Raja Tridiv Roy, a Buddhist from the Chittagong Hill Tracts who became a Federal Minister in the Pakistani government and founded the only Buddhist temple in Islamabad, in his book. I, therefore, present the following brief personal account of the late Raja’s life and labor for Buddhism with honor and pride.

Raja Tri div Roy was born on 14 May 1933. His father, Raja Nalinaksha, was the 49th monarch of the Chakmas in the Chittagong Hill Tracts, and his mother, RaniBenita Roy, was the granddaughter of Keshab Chandra Sen, a religious reformer who joined the Brahmo Samaj. Her father, Keshab Chandra Sen, was a religious reformer who joined the Brahmo Samaj. Saral Chandra Sen. was a Lincoln’sInn barrister.

Raja Tridiv Roy attended school in Kurseong. West Bengal, where he completed his Cambridge education. However, he was later approved to Lincoln’s Inn to study law. Due to the passing of his father, he was compelled to ascend the throne as the 50th Chakma Raja to serve his people.

As a youthful Raja, he was 18 years old. Never will his contributions to the Chakma community be forgotten. His contributions to his people and Buddhism continued until he died in 2012.

As a young Raja, he worked tirelessly to promote Buddhism in his community. When he saw that the people were not practicing Buddhism correctly, he traveled to Myanmar to study the religion. He returned to Chittagong Hill tracts with a monk, where they commissioned an expert Myanmar craftsman to create a Buddha statue. 

Raja Tridiv Roy Founded the First Pali College in Rangamati

Chittagong Hill tracts are home to Bangladesh’s indigenous population, the majority of whom are Buddhists. Two hypotheses exist regarding the Chakma people. Initial one. According to history, they are direct descendants of the Sakyas. According to some historians, the alternative hypothesis is that there was a king named Bijoy Giri, whose kingdom was Champak Nagar. During his conquest of the Hill Tracts, he learned that his younger sibling had taken control of the kingdom back home. Therefore, he established his kingdom in the Chittagong Hill Tracts (British India).

1971 Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto appointed Raja Tridiv Roy as Tourism Minister and Minorities Minister. Later, he was appointed Pakistan’s ambassador to Argentina with concurrent accreditation to Chile, Uruguay, Peru, and Ecuador for fourteen years.

When Zulfikar Ali Bhutto was Pakistan’s prime minister, he offered Raja Tridiv Roy the chance to become president. However, Raja Tridiv Roy politely declined the offer because, per the constitution, he was required to transition to Islam to become president.

Throughout 2005. Die Sri LankaRanjana was bestowed to Raja Tridiv Roy by the President of Sri Lanka for his contributions to Buddhism. He established the Buddhist Society in Pakistan and contributed to the growth of the Buddhist community there. National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) estimates that approximately 16000 Buddhists reside in Pakistan. In Pakistan, Raja Tridiv Roy assisted Buddhists in acquiring cremation grounds. In 2002, when Pakistan and Japan signed an agreement for a Gandhara exhibition, he led the Pakistani delegation to Tokyo to display priceless Gandharan artifacts.

With the assistance of the Sri Lankan Embassy, he established a temple in the diplomatic enclave for Buddhist diplomats and local Buddhists to meditate and pay their respects to Buddha. Buddha Pum-ima would be celebrated annually in the temple, decorated with lights, and attended by Buddhists from all over Pakistan and foreign dignitaries.

Raja Tridiv Roy has written volumes on Buddhism (Buddhist lectures) and organized many Buddhist conferences in Islamabad, where delegations from Sri Lanka, Myanmar, Thailand, and other nations participated. His primary goal was to make the world peaceful and convey that all religions teach the same thing: “To be a good human being.”

Raja Tridiv Roy was also a writer. In addition to his autobiography ‘The Departed Melody,’ he wrote ‘South American Dairies’ and ‘The Windswept Wahini,’ a collection of short stories. One of his stories was included in the curriculum for 10th-grade literature in Pakistan.

On September 17, 2012, Raja Tridiv Roy passed away peacefully at his residence in Islamabad. May his essence be bestowed with the Triple Gem’s blessing.

The Sound of Dhamma Peace for Dr. Tetsu Nakamura

I was writing about my visit to the land of World Heritage Buddhistcivilisation in the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, both in Taxila and Peshawar or Purushapura of the ancient Rushan Empire, to recount the ringing ceremonies of the Bells of Peace. Dr.Tetsu Nakamura and his aides were assassinated by unidentified terrorist assailants on December 4, 2019, at the Jalalabad airport in Afghanistan, close to the Khyber Pass in Pakistan, which connects Peshawar, Pakistan.

Later, I learned that in 1984, Dr. Tetsu had traveled from Japan to Peshawar in north Pakistan as a medical volunteer to care for patients. At the time, Peshawar and Swot suffered from a lack of resources and medical supplies. Peshawar had a small 16-bed hospital to accommodate thousands of patients. Dr. Tetsu set up Peace Japan Medical Service – to provide health services for Pakistanis.

The irrigation project was completed in 2014. It provides irrigated water from the Kunar River, covering water supplies for 60,000 acres of land. Dr. Both the government and the Taliban lauded Tetsu’s commitment to bettering the lives of Afghan citizens. Dr. Tetsu also received widespread international acclaim for his devoted service to the development and welfare of the public, which reflected his Tendai Buddhist philosophy, “Ichigu Wo Terasu,” which translates to “Light your candle and radiate it to the world.”

Therefore, on this occasion, I would like to pay tribute to Dr. Tetsu Nakamura for his virtuous deeds. As for me, I will have more opportunities to travel to Peshawar – to work with the archaeological unit of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on the restoration of a 15-meter-long Parinibbana Buddha image, the longest ever discovered and excavated from a Buddhist World Heritage site in Pakistan. I will also have to liaise with the authorities in Taxila regarding constructing a meditation hall to welcome pilgrims worldwide.

With confidence in the truth that “the Dhamma will protect those who practice it,” all plans will continue in Pakistan and Afghanistan with compassion. 


Dhamma Diary

Wherever you know, immediately abandon it. 

Wherever you give up is where you are aware. 

Knowledge followed by abandonment will purify you.

And purity’ leads to enlightenment.

After illumination, You can put out the fires of impurity and suffering. 

There will be no more going, arriving, arising, vanishing, constructing, or conditioning.

The constitution of hibbana is to be unaffected by any cause (visankhara).

Ayuna sankhara, 

Ayuna nibbanam.

“Kamma accumulation is a conditioning,

non-accumulation is Nibbana.”

Meetings with His Excellency Mr. Asim Iftikhar Ahmad

Mr. Asim Iftikhar Ahmad, the then-Ambassador of Pakistan to Thailand, told MostVenerable Arayawangso, “We all hope to welcome Most Venerable to spend his rains retreat in Pakistan. Although it was impossible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we hope it will occur in the future, not just once, but many times.”

Today, Most Venerable is spending the BE2565 rains retreat in Taxila, Pakistan.

It is proceeding flawlessly with full blessings, and he has completed his research study on Gandharancivilization with the intention of including the findings in a book soon to be published. The book can be studied by Buddhists and those interested in the Buddhist philosophy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Dr. Nitinant Wisaweisuan, who accompanied Most Venerable Arayawangso on his visit to H.E. Mr. Asim Iftikhar Ahmed and his family at Pakistan House on August 25, 2020, recorded her privileged experiences and posted them on her Facebook page as follows:

It was an honor for me (Ms. Nitinant Wisaweisuan) to accompany Most VenerableArayawangso on his visit to His Excellency Mr.Asim Iftikhar Ahmad and his family at PakistanHouse on 25/0820. Also joined by Faraz Zaidi AImran Shaukat. Sadaqat, First Secretary, and MV followers. The Most Venerable Arayawangso was presented with a Pakistani-style alms offering before engaging in a vibrant discussion on various topics.

Most Venerable began by describing the Sattahakaraniya procedure permitted by Dhamma-Vinaya and his ongoing initiatives. Most Venerable recalled an incident from more than two decades ago when he was seated with a group of Thai Muslims in the south of Thailand and was asked, “How are Buddhism and Islam different?”.

Before responding. MV looked briefly at the interrogator and said, “Buddhism and Islam are like the left and right eyes; they both gaze in the same direction. 

“Inshallah!” exclaimed the enquirer upon hearing this response. The Thais would not be considered Thai if they wore Pakistani attire. In actuality, neither Pakistani nor Thai exist. If we remove the Pakistani and Thai labeling, clothing is necessary for everyone. This implies that everyone requires spiritual support and life principles corresponding to his or her specific social environment.

Thus, harmony can result from an appreciation of difference. That is identifying similarities within disagreements. If we can recognize similarities and differences, connection will ensue. You will not perceive the distinction as a source of discord. You smell the difference as a similarity that will not result in division.

According to Ulis, peace originates from comprehension, and comprehension stems from mindfulness and discernment. As a result. Buddhism is not like other religions in that it emphasizes mindfulness and wisdom. Both Islam and Christianity seek to cultivate mindfulness and wisdom. How profoundly mindfulness and discernment are cultivated depends on their respective teachings. However, peace will emerge as long as we have mindfulness and wisdom.

Peace cannot exist in a society devoid of mindfulness and insight. Once a new belief is formed, the individual will alter his mind; irrational belief can never lead to true peace. This is why Western superpower nations attempt to destroy other countries’ social structures by distorting their extant views. Even in the era of modern IT. New impressions are permeating existing beliefs.

We cannot compel most people to believe what we want, but we can educate them to promote peaceful coexistence. Had I been able to, I would have spent this year’s monsoon retreat in Gandhara. You (Ambassador Asim Iftikhar Ahmad) could have listened to additional Dhamma discourses. The Dhamma would have been relevant to Pakistanis if they had developed a genuine spiritual comprehension through mind cultivation.

Mind cultivation enables us to comprehend all creatures, including venomous, ferocious serpents. For example, once, a serpent in a Thai forest had an unusual appearance. This forest has numerous snakes, but this one is unlike the others. Breed-wide, some are black, and others are green, but this one is black and green.

When I first saw it, I smiled and thought it was an odd serpent. It would slither back and forth in the forest while I was meditating. I left the forest one day and returned a few months later. While meditating in a small chamber that resembled a cave. I considered that serpent. Between 2 and 3 p.m. Slowly opening my eyes, I saw the snake raising its head and opening its red maw, staring straight at me. I told it it was alright. There was no need to come and visit me anymore.

This demonstrates that peace can be attained through mindfulness and wisdom. On that day, if we had been startled (either by the other or myself), he would have bitten me. It was also crucial that I spoke to him with lovingkindness. Lovingkindness is an authentic instrument for achieving peace. From my first visit to Pakistan, Loving-kindness is an innate characteristic of the Pakistani people. They are genuinely endearing. I feel this way even behind their backs. If we can improve Pakistan’s economy and reduce the poverty gap, terrorism will cease, and many problems will gradually diminish because Pakistanis are fundamentally peaceful people.

I will write a book on peace in the land of Buddhist Heritage in Pakistan and share the merits with you, Ambassador Blessings. Most Venerable lauded the Ambassador, stating that his tenure in Thailand had benefited Pakistan greatly. MV had also mentioned this to the President of Pakistan because the Thai Foreign Minister had remarked that the Ambassador had helped the Thai people gain a greater understanding of Pakistan.

MV added, “Unfortunately, the Ambassador will no longer be operating in Thailand. Things have been going well, but we must proceed. Now, Ambassador Asim has the opportunity to assist Pakistan even more. We hope that your successor will continue the task you’ve begun in Thailand. I am confident that what you have accomplished here has been replicated globally and acknowledged by the Pakistani government. These accomplishments will ensure your future career success.

This is one of the reasons I have accepted the invitation to visit Pakistan each time I have been invited. Many more initiatives await you because Pakistan still requires an ambassador like you. Particularly one who can promote Pakistan as an international nation, not limited to a single religion. In the world’s minds, most Islamic countries are defined by their faith, consequently limiting their role. However, you have broadened this viewpoint and propagated the true Islamic nature of a Muslim who regards everyone as a brother or sister.

As a magnificent blessing for stating this truth, may your future endeavors be increasingly fruitful. Whether a prayer is holy or not depends on whether it is founded on the fact. The benefit will be tremendous and divine if it is based on the Dhamma truth consistent with the realities of nature and our own lives. This fact is reflected in our actions. Whatever we do, we will reap the rewards of our efforts. No deity can provide additional titan die truth. God cannot grant you anything if you neither read nor pay attention in class. But if you diligently fulfill your responsibilities, you will succeed, and God will root for you.

I am confident that what you have accomplished here has been replicated around the globe and acknowledged by the Pakistani government. These accomplishments will ensure your future career success. There are numerous ambassadors between nations. Most of them confine themselves to that country’s region and its people to the point where it is unclear what the role of an ambassador is. However, you have made the function of an ambassador from an Islamic republic public, so Thais are now aware of your actions. You have strengthened your ties with the Islamic religion, the local Islamic community, and individuals of other faiths through educational, economic, and social activities for the benefit of all. You have undoubtedly achieved success as a genuine ambassador.

First, we must discover the similarities in our differences. Second, we must foster mutual understanding by promoting communication and collaboration between Pakistan and other diverse societies and religions. Such is the Pakistani Government’s policy. And finally. I am incredibly grateful and appreciative that Most Venerable has described Pakistanis as brimming with loving-kindness. We all hope to welcome MV to this rain retreat in the future, even if it is not feasible this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This would be the first of many.”

Therefore, god is the force of nature, the highest truth that transcends the world. The meanings of Islam’s god and Buddhism’s Dhamma are identical. If we comprehend this, our approach to the subject is up to us.

With the power of stating this truth, may the blessing be upon you and your family. May you all find peace, prosperity, success, and growth in the future.” After listening to Most Venerable, Ambassador Asim said, “There was nothing I could add, only the thankful feeling for the blessing and all the goodwill that MV has extended to me, his family, and Pakistan.

Most Venerable concluded by wishing all ambassadors would follow Ambassador Asim’s example. If all ambassadors did so, every country would flourish, and most significantly, international friendship would be fostered.

Words from the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to Pakistan

The 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Thailand and Pakistan was celebrated on 10 October 2021, but the ties between the two peoples date back to the Gandhara civilization, which flourished for more than 2,000 years. Most Venerable Arayawangso understands the significance of this connection.

Most Venerable Arayawangso visited Pakistan for the first time in 2019 at the invitation of the Pakistani government. On that occasion, there was a ceremony to ring the Bell of Peace at Taxila Museum, a declaration of peace and well wishes from the people of Thailand to all of Pakistan. In 2022, the Governor of Punjab invited Most Venerable Arayawangso to stay at Taxila Museum during a three-month Buddhist rain retreat.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Government of Pakistan for inviting the Most Venerable to pay a courtesy visit to the President and high-ranking officers of Pakistan, accompanied by a warm reception from the people of Pakistan. In exchange, the arrival of the Most Venerable has brought many virtues to this magnificent land. At the government level, his visit coincides with Pakistan’s policy to promote tourism in many historic and Buddhist sites throughout the country. The success of this mission will also contribute to the development of the local economy. Most Venerable has exchanged academic and senior official knowledge through numerous meetings.

From his visits and interactions with local communities, he has extended his kindness and benevolence to the people around him through his speech, gestures, and mind, fostering the bond of relationship and promoting peaceful coexistence between people of different faiths with respect for their local beliefs and traditions.

In addition, MV has witnessed the suffering of the Pakistani people due to the severe floods. He has taken the initiative to coordinate swift donations from the people of Thailand to support the flood victims in Pakistan. The government and the people of Pakistan have praised this act of kindness. Even if one did not travel with MostVenerable, we will feel his service and attention to even the most minor details that many may overlook, including his good wishes. We will be led on one of the most memorable journeys to a land of an ancient civilization that many of us have never visited.

Learn a history that may have been forgotten, see the connection between people in distant nations, and experience a form of friendship that you may have never encountered. Words from Colonel, Military and Defense Attache, Royal Thai Embassy.

I was so grateful and honored to have been allowed to contribute to this book. I was also very fortunate to have had the opportunity to follow and support M.V. Aray-awangso and his followers during their stay in Pakistan during the Rains Retreat in 2022. This was the first time in around 2,000 years that Buddhism flourished in modern-day Pakistan. As a group member touring various locations in Pakistan, I have witnessed several world heritage sites where locals in the past and present, including Pakistanis, have attempted to preserve them.


Even though most people in present-day Pakistan are Muslims, these heritages have been taken as much care of as possible. The Government of Pakistan has supported this trip; the provincial governments of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, law enforcement officers, Inter-Services Intelligence, and all Pakistanis, who have always provided us with heartfelt hospitality and assistance, which contributed to the success of the trip.
