Lake House plays commendable role
The patronage extended to various religious activities by Lake House
Chairman Bandula Padmakumara and the Board of Directors is exemplary,
said Ven. Kirama Vimalajothi Thera, Director of Nedimala Buddhist
Cultural Centre when he met the Chairman to apprise him of the future
work program of Sri Sambuddha Jayanthi Complex being constructed at
Thunmulla junction, Colombo.
The Ven. Thera said the country’s youth leadership would contribute
its mite to Dhamma propagation to be launched by the Complex. The
Buddhist canons, texts and Tripitaka would also be translated into
Lake House Chairman Bandula Padmakumara who paid homage to the Ven.
Thera for his charity work, presented a cash gift of the Lake House
He commended the mission of the Sambuddha Jayanthi Complex for its
dedication to preserve Theravada Buddhism in its pristine form in the
interest of the Buddhist world. He said the youth would one day find it
difficult to distinguish the Theravada school of thought in view of the
growing influence of Mahayana.
“They would perhaps mistake the Samadhi Statue, the Masterpiece of
Buddhist Creative Art for a Mahayana Buddha Statue”. The need of the
hour is to protect Theravada Buddhism, he said.
Ven. Vimalajothi Thera said he believed that Sambuddha Jayanthi
Complex would help posterity to understand Buddhism correctly and mould
their lives according to Dhamma principles.
