2019 New Year greetings from Amyotha Hluttaw Speaker Mahn Win Khaing Than

Speeches

First of all I wish to send these good wishes with metta for good health, well-being, wealth and auspiciousness to all our esteemed and respected ethnic national brothers and sisters, and those living abroad.

We are now transitioning from the Christian year 2018 to the New Year, 2019. As we have passed one year, we should reassess the numerous events we have encountered in the past year such as causes and effects, the good and the bad and by drawing life lessons from them we should build better situations for the future. In the New Year we should strive with renewed spirits, energy and bodies, based on loving-kindness and good character for uplifting the socio-economic life of the people. Only then will be we able to establish the peaceful, developed and prosperous Democratic Federal Union, which is the common goal and aspiration of all the people. As we march towards our goal, as peace and development are interdependent, we should cast aside our animosities, hatred, ego and pride for peace and national development. I urge you to work in every peace process without prejudice, cooperate and carry out any task that may be given to you, be it “a grain of sand or a piece of brick”. Like the saying “A task which cannot be accomplished by one may be accomplished by ten thousand”. I would also like to urge all of you to put in joint efforts and work with collective strength.

I pray that all citizens of the Union will have happiness, peace and prosperity. As I send this New Year message I pray that all of you will be able to act with the teachings of your respective religions in your hearts.
