My dear respected brothers and sisters of the Ethnic People and citizens,
On this auspicious occasion of the Myanmar New Year, on behalf of the Amyotha Hluttaw, I send my greetings and good wishes to all Myanmar citizens for their good health and happiness, and to be able to pass over to the New Year happily with auspiciousness.
In changing from the old year to the New Year, we need to review our performance during the old year, discard the impurities of the old year, and figure out things to do in the New Year with sincerity and good will, good intentions and good faith, and good character.
For the emergence of a prosperous and peaceful Democratic Federal Union, which is the shared aspiration of all ethnic people, I would like to especially urge all ethnic people to participate together with renewed spirit and vigor in building eternal peace imbued with Metta (loving-kindness) at this auspicious time of the New Year.
People’s representatives like us follow the Hluttaw motto of “People’s voice is Hluttaw’s voice, people’s wish is Hluttaw’s wish, “Hluttaw implements people’s hopes” in striving to fulfill the wishes of the people in the best possible way and we pledge to strive with every ounce of our energy.
Beginning from this year, I hope that all brothers and sisters of the ethnic people and citizens are blessed with auspiciousness.
May they achieve a peaceful life and in performing the various needful tasks in the New Year, may they have the ability to act always with an attitude of “respect” by having high regard for elders, respecting equals and being compassionate to those who are younger.
