Chinese Buddhists are making contributions to the world peace together with other Buddhists all over the world, a leader of the Chinese Buddhist delegation said Wednesday at the Second Buddhist Summit.

"We believe that Buddhism can guide a right way of people's lives and also can create a peaceful world without any violence but with love and compassion," said Jue Xing, leader of the nine- member delegation and vice president of the Buddhist Association of China.

"I'm sure that the summit will supply a very good opportunity for us all to join hands to make close contacts with one another and to promote the mutual understanding and friendship among the Buddhists all over the world," Jue Xing said.

More than 1,000 representatives including government ministers, officials and religious leaders from 26 countries and regions are participating the Second Buddhist Summit, being held on Nov. 30- Dec. 2 in Nepal's southern city of Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha, with an aim to promote world peace.

The summit is being organized by Lumbini Development Trust, a non-governmental organization, and promoted by the Nepali government.
