    Join hands to build a society well established with equity and peace - PM Featured

    June 12, 2014

    Sri Lankan Prime Minister and Minister of Buddha Sasana & Religious Affairs D.M.Jayarathna issuing a message to mark the Poson Poya Day invites the nations belonging to all the races in Sri Lanka to join their hands to build a society in which the equity and the peace is well established.

     

    He emphasizes that as clergies or laymen it is our sole responsibility to gift our heritage and to safeguard the culture for the sake of younger generation.

     

    Full message is as follows:

     

    I am privileged to add this message on account of Poson Poya day celebrations which mark the historic advent of Buddhism preached by Samma Sambudu Lord Buddha to our motherland by Arahath Mahinda Thero.

    It is noteworthy that the mission of Arahath Mahinda Thero paved the way to make Sri Lanka a country with a nation disciplined by norms and values of the Buddhism.

    Arahath Mahinda Thero, being a follower of the Lord Buddha arrived in Sri Lanka all the way from India due to sympathy on the people in our country and distributed the Buddhism in every nook and corner of the country with the objective of creating a pious generation.

    It is with great sorrow I remind that the heritage of Buddhist culture and values are greatly affected by the imitative and westernized socio-culture. It is our duty to protect our Sri Lankan heritage from the harmful influences exerted from time to time. I emphasize that as clergies or laymen it is our sole responsibility to gift our heritage and to safeguard the culture for the sake of younger generation.

    This Poson Poya day, in which the arrival of Arahath Mahinda Thero is celebrated in great respect, I cordially invite the nations belonging to all the races in Sri Lanka to join their hands to build a society in which the equity and the peace is well established.

    I fervently wish an impressive Poson Poya day to the entire Buddhists around the world.
