Buddhist Summit making a significant headway

Based on the proposal made by Most Ven. Dr. Kyuse Enshinjoh, “Revert to the original teachings of Lord Buddha,” the historic First Buddhist Summit was held in 1998. The world-renowned supreme Buddhist leaders assembled in one hall as the founding members of Buddhist Summit in Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan.

Since then, almost 20 years have passed. In November 2017, the Seventh Buddhist Summit was held in Sri Lanka, a leading country of Theravada Buddhism. The number of member countries had grown from 13 countries and 1 region at the First Buddhist Summit to 47 countries across the 5 continents at the Seventh Buddhist Summit. And thanks to the supreme Buddhist leaders of the world who have made every effort to disseminate Buddhism, the number of Buddhists worldwide has increased from 370 million to 520 million over the past 20 years.

The Seventh Buddhist Summit was held on a grand scale as a national event under the auspices of the government of Sri Lanka in the presence of H.E. President Maithripala Sirisena as the chief guest, Hon. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe as the guest of honor, and members of the Royal Families and national leaders from overseas as honorable guests.
