Most Venerable Davuldena Gnanissara Thera Condemns Violence

The Mahanayaka of Amarapura Maha Nikaya Most Venerable Davuldena Gnanissara Thera has strongly condemned the damaging of lives and property and called for peaceful coexistence.

The Venerable Thera states that it is vital to resolve any issue that may arise, in an amicable manner.

The statement by Venerable Gnanissara Thera is as follows:

May there be Peace through Buddhist Philosophy
Throughout the last few days, a series of unfortunate incidents have been unfolding in Beruwala, Aluthgama, Dharga Town and the vicinity. As Buddhists, we have lived in this country in peace without racial and religious differences. If there was any incident, it has to be resolved through discussion. Damaging lives and property should not be the method to solve problems. I wish to stress that all communities, Sinhalese, Muslims, Tamils, should live in peace and unity.
