Thripitaka is to be declared a national heritage

Cabinet has approved the declaration of the Thripitaka as a National heritage. The reprinting of the Thripitaka and other activities are being carried out under the supervision of the Buddha Sasana Ministry. Minister DumindaDissanayake said that the present Government has taken initiatives to discharge such a valuable part of the work on behalf of the Buddha Sasana.
The Minister said that the present Government was not ready even to reduce the present place accorded to Buddhism or the Sinhala community. President Maithripala Sirisena submitted a Cabinet paper to declare the Thripitika a national heritage. The proposal was approved. No one is talking about these matters. All monks and Buddhists will gain strength along with the approval of this Cabinet proposal.
The Minister said that as Buddhists they are also happy about it for being able to do it during their time. He added that there is no leader or a Government such as the present administration that has ensured the rights of the Buddhists.
