Chief Prelate Of Malwatte Chapter Supports Theravada Dialogue Act

Mahanayake of Malwatte Chapter of Siyam Nikaya, Most Venerable Thibbotuwawe Sri Sumangala Thera, expressed his support for the Theravada Bhikku Dialogue Act, describing it as a timely need.

In a letter to Minister of Justice and Buddha Sasana Wijayadasa Rajapakshe, the Chief Prelate pointed out the importance of setting aside political and other petty considerations and getting the act incorporated into law.

Thibbotuwawe Sumangala Thera stressed that he had suggested the need for such a law to the previous government. However, it had not given any consideration due to political reasons, the Chief Prelate said.

He also pointed out that this will enable the Chief monks in the Nikayas to take action on individual monks who misuse their priesthood and thereby purify the Sasana.
