The great gift of Tripitaka (Sacred Pali Canon), the volume containing the entire Buddhist discourse, is to be declared as a World Heritage in order to preserve Buddhism for the future generations.

Tripitaka or the three baskets of Buddhist teaching (Sutra Pitaka, Vinaya Pitaka and Abhidharma Pitaka) had been made a National heritage of Sri Lanka in January 2019 as there was an urgent and essential need to prevent the Pali text from being translated or interpreted erroneously and to ensure authenticity of the Buddhist teaching.

The Tripitaka which was brought from generation to generation by the Maha Sangha under difficult circumstances was written on palm leaves in Pali for the first time at the historic Aluviharaya in Matale during the reign of King Valagamba.

The National ceremony to announce the proposal made by Sri Lanka to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) to declare the Theravada Tripitaka, the essence of Theravada Buddhism as a World Heritage, with the assistance of all the Buddhist countries in the world, will be held under the patronage of Maha Sangha including the Maha Nayaka Theros of the Tri-Nikayas and with the participation of President Maithripala Sirisena at the  Maha Maluwa (Great Terrace) of the premises of the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic on March 23, 2019.
We stand together to strengthen the effort of the declaration of Tripitaka as a world heritage as the Dhamma gift from Sri Lanka to the world without any division.
