Asian Buddhist Conference For Peace


President's Message

Message From The President Of ABCP

The Asian Buddhist Conference for Peace (ABCP) was jointly established, with its headquarters based in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, in 1969 by Nomch Mergen Khamba Lama Gabju S. Gombojav, Abbot of Gandan Tegchenling Monastery, the Centre of Mongolian Buddhists, Bandida Khamba Lama Gomboev from Buryatia, Russia and Kushok Bakula Rinpoche from India, and religious leaders from Sri Lanka and Nepal.

ABCP, carrying out its activities based on the noble teachings of Lord Buddha, has been expressing its strong voice that has made significant contribution to the unified effort for global peace and security. In recognition of this valuable contribution, the United Nations registered ABCP under the status of ECOSOC.

A landmark event was held in the 50 years of history of ABCP in 2019 when the ABCP National Centers gathered in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia for the 11th ABCP General Assembly, which revised the ABCP Constitution, elected new office bearers and outlined future goals and objectives of our organization.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude towards all the heads of the ABCP National Centres and their staff in the making the 11th General Assembly successful, which coincided with the 50th anniversary of ABCP.

Taking this opportunity, I would also like to welcome you all to our new website and we hope that the ABCP National Centers will actively contribute to making our website an active working one.

May you all accumulate a boundless merit, live long, and continuously benefit the Dharma and all sentient beings!

May everyone reap the boon of great compassion and wisdom of Lord Buddha, and may peace prevail across the world!

Gabji Demberel Choijamts,
President of ABCP,

Khambo Lama,
