Guidance of the Maha Sangha key in building new economic and political systems – President

President Ranil Wickremesinghe emphasized the importance of establishing a new economic and political system in Sri Lanka, noting that all other Theravada Buddhist countries have progressed based on an export-oriented economic system, whereas Sri Lanka has faced bankruptcy due to its import-based economic model.

Therefore, the President emphasized the urgent need to establish both a new economic system and a new political system in the country as soon as possible. He also noted that the guidance and advice of the Maha Sangha are crucial in leading the country along this new path.

President Ranil Wickremesinghe made these remarks while addressing the 44th Higher Ordination ceremony (Upasampada) of the Ariyawansa Saddhamma Yuktika sect of the Maha Vihara Vasika Amarapura Maha Nikaya held on Wednesday (10) at the Karandeniya Siri Abhayatissa Pirivene in Galle.

The Vinaya Kamma of the Ariyawansa Saddhamma Yuktika sect of the Maha Vihara Vasika Amarapura Maha Nikaya is being held under the guidance of Most Venerable Karagoda Uyangoda Maithri Murthi Maha Nayaka Thero of the Amarapura Nikaya from July 10th – 14th, at the Halwathura Udakukkhepa Seema Malaka, Mahaedanda, where 98 novice monks will be ordained into Upasampada.

The Ariyawansa Saddhamma Yuktika sect of the Maha Vihara Vamsika Amarapura Maha Nikaya, representing over 4,000 monks resident in more than 600 temples, performs the Upasampada Vinaya Kamma ceremony once every two years.

Parivenadhipati of Karandeniya Siri Abhayatissa, Galle Venerable Ginigala Pedese Sudhamma Thero, presented the commemorative book related to Higher Ordination (Upasampada) to President Ranil Wickremesinghe.
