Jagaran Bouddha Somaja the premises of Chittagong Press Club

Jagaran Bouddha Somaja the premises of Chittagong Press Club

Protest against Feroz Mannan for his unacceptable heinous comment on World’s Greatest Peace lover Super Human Being Goutama Buddha through Human Chain and Protest Rally by  Jagaran Bouddha Somaja the premises of Chittagong Press Club, on 28th April Friday at 3.00 p.m. In the daily Janakantha Feroz Mannan reported that The Buddha is a terrorist referring to Wikipedia which is quite wrong. There is no such thing in Wikepedia. Also he told that the meditation Centers in Chittagong Hill Tracts are patronising the terrorists with the ideals of 969 theory as formed in Myanmar. 9 for the virtuous qualities of The Buddha, 6 for the virtuous qualities of the great Dhamma and 9 for the virtuous qualities of the Dhamma. His reports are malicious and purpose oriented. The Buddhists demand that he must be taken into justice otherwise the Buddhists of Bangladesh will continue to hesitate till his arrest for justice. He in disguise is trying to jeopardise the communal harmony and is tactfully trying to spread hatred amongst the Muslim brothers and sisters. But his country will go ahead with communal harmony under the leadership of Bangabandhu daughter Janantri Desharatna Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina we hope. We request our Prime Minister to take the matter seriously and do the justice to the Buddhist community of Bangladesh We extend our deepest love and respect of Thrice Sacred Buddha Purnima 2061 to be observed on 10th May 2017 to our dear Prime Minister.

His Holiness Sanghanayaka resolved to offer some of Atisha’s ashes to His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje so that a connection could be made with Tibet. He created a golden replica of the original stupa and placed some of the ashes inside a slightly curved cup with a dome-shaped cover. He also brought with him the precious text to show to the Karmapa. The Karmapa was also offered a thangka of the three deities of long life—Amitayus, White Tara, and Ushnisha Vijaya—and the Karmapa in turn offered the Sanghanaya a magnificent statue of the Buddha.

It is mentioned here that In 1963, a three member Buddhist delegation headed by His Holiness the 24th Mahasanghanayaka Visuddhananda Mahathera the then President of Bangladesh Bouddha Kristi Prachar Sangha had travelled to China and arranged to bring some remains and hand-written manuscripts of ATISHA DIPANKARA. He again had travelled to China to retrieve precious Buddhist objects in 1978, which included a bronze statue of Atisha, a stupa with the precious ashes of Atisha and a very old Tibetan text of his biography in the form of a supplication, composed by Dromtönpa (1004-1064), his chief disciple and founder of the famous Kadampa lineage. The text is titled, “A Supplication to Jowo Je Palden Atisha Presenting His Life Story”. His Holiness the 28th Sanghanayaka Suddhananda Mahathero, one of the many prolific disciples of the towering and illuminating personalities of Bangladesh Buddhist Communities His Holiness the 24th Mahasanghanayaka Visuddhananda Mahathero, was associated with the said two delegations to China. A 3-day long 1000th Birth Anniversary of Atisha Dipankara Sreejnan was held on 23 February 1983 at Dhammarajika Buddhist Monastery, Atisha Dipankara Road, Sabujbag, Dhaka, Bangladesh which was inaugurated by H M Ershad, the then President of Bangladesh. The Atisha Dipankara’s Ash Relics and hand-written manuscripts are presently preserved at Dhammarajika Buddhist Monastery, Atisha Dipankara Road, Sabujbag, Dhaka, Bangladesh. Bangladesh Bouddha Kristi Prachar Sangha since 1978 has been vigorously working for keeping the name of ATISHA DIPANKARA ever-memorable in the world. For this and in view of memorizing him, The Atisha Dipankara Memorial Complex & Relics Stupa is going to be constructed in his birth place at Vajrayogini, Munshiganj, Bangladesh. Moreover, there is a plan to construct Atisha Dipankara Multipurpose Project in which accommodation, library, ritual facilities and a University shall also be incorporated in the said place of this great saint. Further note that the Atisha Memorial Stupa has been completed in the end of 2016 and it was inaugurated by Most Ven. Chun Yi, Vice President, The Buddhist Association of China 2017. Subsequently (13th January, 2017) The Government of the People’s of Republic of Bangladesh has kindly consented the 16 private Universities of which one is THE ATISHA DIPANKAR INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY (His Holiness Sanghanayaka Suddhananda Mahathera is the patron of the University).
