[InKunming--China]  Master Xuecheng, president of the Buddhist Association of China, on Saturday urged buddhists across the world to promote communication between different civilizations.

Speaking at the fourth World Buddhist Forum in Wuxi city, Jiangsu Province, Master Xuecheng said buddhists should contribute their wisdom to solving problems that are common to the development of human society.

He said Buddhism has always played an active role in facilitating the communication of human civilizations. He called for dialogues between different sects of Buddhism and between Buddhism and other religions.

Master Xuecheng also said buddhists should use the new progress of technologies to innovate the methods of promoting Buddhism and respond to social problems caused by the technological development.

Jointly proposed by Buddhist communities in Chinese mainland, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao in 2005, World Buddhist Forum was established as a platform for buddhists to communicate and cooperate. More than 1,000 monks and scholars from 52 countries and regions participated in this year's meeting.
