The right status and respect deserved for Buddhism should remain intact in the constitution, Colombo's Archbishop Rt. Rev. Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said today.

He expressed this view while participating at a religious ceremony held under the patronage of Chief incumbent Ven. Daranagama Kusaladhamma Nayaka Thera at the Sri Sambodhi Viharaya in Colombo.

The ceremony was held to confer the honour on the new Mahanayaka of the Asgiri Chapter Most Ven. Warakagoda Sri Gnanarathana Thera and the Anunayaka Theras and the Secretary Thera of the Asgiri Chapter and the Chief Incumbent Thera.

Rev.Cardinal Ranjith expressing his pleasure for inviting him to the occasion also said the teaching of Buddhism bring us relief whenever we are confronted with mental pain and discomfort .

The prominence of the country relies on Buddhism and there should not be any decision to change its due place secured by the constitution as we all live in a country nourished by Buddhism.

Rev. Cardinal Rajith also expressed their willingness to cooperate with the Maha Sanga to enhance the spiritual improvement of the people. (Amaradasa Silva)

    Religion is meant to help people achieve spirituality and is personal in that sense, hence it should not play any part in politics. This opportunistic statement is made with the aim of gaining cheap political mileage and none else.

    NO one contradict on this . It is the misconception/phobia that is in the mind of certain people that is creating problem.

    Thank you very much father. Some of our own people who are acting against Buddhism for money, should be taught a very good lesson. Thanks again.

    Respect for Buddhism and all religions and non beliefs should be the new norm. And we should make way for a secular Sri Lanka where all are respected and treated as equals.

    What you are saying is Christianity does not bring relief.As the head of the Catholic Church you have been making statements time and time again that has hurt even the tamillions people. Remember the one you made just after the war?
