Adisorn Piengkes, Ph.D.,
Students, professors, and officials
I am pleased to welcome monsignors, and Ph.D. students majoring in Buddhist and Management and Public Administration, Mahachulalongkornrajavidyalaya university. Listening to the curriculum description, I appreciate that the university provides two interesting courses namely Buddhist and Management, and Public Administration. More importantly, Buddhism has been the main institution associated with Thai nation for a long time, and it is a basis of culture and tradition. People nowadays view Buddhism, especially Dharma principle as playing a significant role in purifying mind, improving working life and daily life. As a result, the society becomes peaceful, and is compatible with Buddhist principle.
There is no doubt that; even though the courses are provided for the first time, there are a number of students and monsignors joining and helping improve the courses because those students and monsignors view them as unique in integrating Buddhist principle, and management as well as contemporary sciences together. I believe that; in every field of works, Dharma principle should be taken as the main principle for management. Following the right principle leads to success in life, working life, and proper way of thinking. Working without Dharma, consciousness, and concentration means a lack of neutrality, morality, and wisdom. I appreciate that those good courses and hope to see them and other Buddhist courses extended. Therefore, Dharma reaches officials in governmental agencies or students. As they apply Dharma to lead their lives, and take Dharma as a guideline for management, Dharma becomes beneficial to their lives and; eventually, the country in return.
Monsignors and students, the government is ready to support good courses, particularly those of which upholding Buddhism as the main principle of the country and as the principle guiding lives. I am proud to be here, witnessing and listening to the discussion. I appreciate and would like to extend my good wish to successful research and Buddhist work so that they are beneficial to the country and university. Thank you.
