Integrity is of paramount importance for Democracy and integrity means the quality of being honest, moral. “No one is above the law” is of utmost importance for the growth, progress and development of democracy. Those who know the essential to be essential and the unessential to be unessential, dwelling in right thoughts, do arrive at the essential. Equity, empowerment, environment and employment need to be thought for human development. Right understanding, right thought, right speech, right action, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right concentration must be practiced by the people in their daily way of life. Nothing is impossible to one with wish-to-do, work hard, will and wisdom. Always be active, brave, creative, disciplined, earnest, firm, gentlemanly, healthy, impartial, judicious, knowledgeable, legitimate, meditative, negotiable, obliging, patient, qualified, resourceful, satisfying, teetotal, united, valiant, willing, extrovert, youthful, zealous. To one ever eager to revere and serve the elders, those four blessings accrue: long life and beauty, happiness and power. Impatience and impeachment are the barriers for building and development of democracy. One for all and all for one is a good maxim for the strength of democracy. National reconciliation process needs the concerted efforts and supports from the people throughout the nation. Ambition, attitude, audacity, appearance, altruism and authority are the qualities of a great leader for democracy. Love to live, live to learn and learn to live in longevity, leave a good legacy is the inborn duties of the people in this planet.
Discipline (morality/character) is the power for building democracy. Enduring patience is the highest austerity. Man matters most and mindset matters most. One truly is the protector of oneself; who else could the protector be? Concern for community and caring the people is the foundation of democracy. Right man in the right place is good practice for democratic reform. Accountability, transparency, efficiency and effectiveness and participatory are fundamentals for good governance and democratic management. Cooperation, coordination, collaboration and compromising are important works for achieving the democratic goal. Your thought, speech, action and livelihood are of importance for building and development of democracy.
Difficult, indeed, is self-control and do not be heedless. A worse taint than these is ignorance, the worst of all taints; destroy this one taint and become taintless. You yourselves must strive and observing and strictly keeping the five precepts, great charity, can help the people in this planet secure, stable and develop the love, peace, joy and democracy.
