Mahanayakas postpone Thursday Maha Sangha Convention due to current situation

[TamilNet, Wednesday, 17 February 2010, 01:59 GMT]
The Maha Sangha Convention called by the Mahanayakas of four chapters that is scheduled to be held on Thursday (February 18) to discuss the current volatile political situation in the country has been postponed indefinitely citing security reasons, Dalada Maligawa sources said.

Mahanayakas of Malwatte Chapter Ven. Tibbotuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thera and Asgiriya Chapter Ven. Udugama Sri Rathanapala Buddharakkitha Thera said in a statement Tuesday that they withheld their decision to hold the Sangha Convention considering the security aspect of Buddhist monks and devotees who are supposed to assemble in large numbers at Mahamaluwa of Sri Dalada Maligawa, under the present circumstances of the country.

However, Mahanayakas of Amarapura Chapter Ven. Dawuldena Gnanissara Thera and Ramanna Chapter Ven. Weweldeniye Medhalankara Thera did not sign the statement.
