"I saw a glow on the faces of those monks who travelled to India and a great curiosity on the faces of those who wish to travel to India," says the PM. Modi further humbly invites "all in Vietnam to travel to the land of Buddha, and especially to Varanasi which I represent in India's Parliament".
Speaking at the Pagoda, the PM says he is fortunate to make a trip here after first Indian President, Dr Rajendra Prasad, in 1959. "Our relationship spans 2,000 years. Some people came here with the objective of war. We came here with a message of peace which has endured.". The PM adds that the world should walk on the path of peace that brings happiness and prosperity, "while war only brings transient greatness".
