    Was educated at a leading Buddhist school in Colombo where we were taught a philosophy. Not a religion. This great philosophy is not mine or anyone’s heritage. It is for all irrespective of color, breed or race.

    Isn't it also an Indian heritage?

    The Pali Thipitaka was written in Sri Lanka in the Sinhala script. Although it presently kept at the British Museum. They are refusing to return it back to Sri Lanka and also restore the authentic Buddha history they obfuscated.

    Good move. But all the activities of reprinting etc should be done exactly according to advice of a committee of learned educated monks well versed in Pali and Sinhala . However this committee should be able to gain the assistance of Lay Buddhista who are equally knowledgeable in Pali and Sinhala. too. All changes have to be thoroughly discussed and looked into .

    This is a move to curb new trend of rethinking certain elements of Tripitaka. They want to maintain monopoly in the field rather than opening opportunity to see the truth.
