The Thipitaka will be declared as a national heritage at a national ceremony to be held under the Patronage of President Maithripala Sirisena at the historic Aluvihara Temple, Matale today.

The Tripitaka contains the preaching of the Lord Buddha, and contains three volumes as Suthra, Vinaya and Abhidharma.

As an outcome of the visit, taken place in 3rd century B.C of Arahath Mahinda Thera, Sri Lanka was blessed with the Tripitaka.

The contents of Tripitaka were brought forward by Maha Sanga by heart for centuries.

Then for the first time the Tripitaka was written on Ola leaves at Aluviharaya Temple, Matale in 1st Century of B.C. during King Walagamba’s time.

The Tripitaka, written on Ola leaves was edited and issued in printed form in 1956 in line with the Sri Sambuddha Jayanthiya under the guidance of Ven. Balangoda Ananda Maithriya Thera.

Today’s event will be held with the participation of three Chief Incumbents of three chapters and of 1,500 Maha Sanga under state patronage.
