A Message from the Most Ven. Daranagama Kusaladhamma Thero, the President of ' The Buddhist' TV.
The gift of Dhamma, expounded by the Supremely Enlightened Buddha, is a priceless gift, that Sri Lanka can offer to the world and it's people.
Buddhism shows the way, for mankind to tread from a world of darkness, that of - hatred, delusion, suffering and conflict into a new world of light, filled with loving kindness, compassion, peace and happiness. This goal could be achieved within the next few decades of the 21st century, making it a catalyst for a new world order. This would be by bringing about righteousness.
I hereby appeal to each and everyone, to assist us in which ever way possible, to continue this channel successfully into the future.
