Jaffna's first Intl Buddhist Conference this week

The Karuna International Convention, the first International Buddhist Conference to be held in the North will be held in Jaffna on May 20 at the Weerasinham Hall, Jaffna.

According to Naga Viharadikari Ven. Meegahajandure Siri Wimala Thera, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe pledged support to uplift the Jaffna Tamil Buddhist Association that functions under the Jaffna Naga Vihara.

The aim of the Government is to maintain ethnic and religious harmony through this programme. Many in Jaffna are under the wrong impression that Buddhism is a religion which belongs to Sinhalese, he said. However Buddhism is a global religion, the thera said.

Members of the Triple Gem Foundation in Bangalore, India Tripitaka Tamil Foundation, Chennai Dhamma Vijaya Mahaviharaya and Madurai Buddhist Trust of Andra Pradesh will participate in this conference.

Tamil monks and Tamil Buddhists from India will also participate.
