Buddhism is an ancient dharmic path. It has spread the cultural elements of Indian far in to Asia and beyond.

We must be proud of its heritage. Buddhist sites must be preserved with extreme care, and if possible, cooperate with other countries such as Pakistan and Afganistan for preserving our shared history.
