(July 12, Trincomalee, Sri Lanka Guardian) The ethnic harmony is blooming in East through Trincomalee Buddhist temple, according sources from East. According to the chief prelate at Trincomalee Buddhist temple, the Sinhalese, Tamils and Muslims are coming together as one in East. The massive crowd that attended the Buddhist Perehada is proof for this ethnic solidarity and collaboration in East.

However, several elements from TNA is trying to obstruct these positive developments, sources from East added. “ The TNA and LTTE can not survive if peace prevails in East,” according to Ven Kapugollawe Ananda Kirthi of Sri Jayasumanarama Temple in Trinco. This is the oldest and largest temple in Trincomalee.

Interestingly, when Sri Lanka Guardian toured the temple last Sunday, we also noticed that several Muslim children are also attending the Buddhist Sunday School service.

“The Tamils, Sinhalese and Muslims are closer to each other nowadays that it had ever been in the history,” Ven. Ven Kapugollawe Ananda Kirthi added.

Very very happy to read the article and hope those elements will not be successful in disturbing the peace.

Buddhist spirituality is a very natural thread to bring communities together, not the Buddhist religion practiced by lot of stupid people like followers of other religious faith.

It might take thousands of years; but at the end only the truth will prevail.
It is time for all religious groups to forget the terrible events in the past and start facing the truth.... none of us are here to live for ever...
