Sri Lanka Buddhist Tour

According to traditional Sri Lankan chronicles (such as the Dipavamsa), Buddhism was introduced into Sri Lanka in the 2ndcentury BC by Venerable Mahinda Thero, the son of the Emperor Ashoka, during the reign of Sri Lankan king Devanampiya Tissa. During this time a sapling of the Bodhi Tree, renowned to be the tree under which Gautama Buddha attained “Enlightment” was brought to Sri Lanka and the first monasteries were established under the sponsorship of the Sri Lankan king. The Pali canon having previously being preserved as an oral tradition, was first committed to writing in Sri Lanka around 30 BC. This is our rich heritage which encompasses 2000 years.

Sri Lanka has the longest and continuous history of Buddhism, with the Sangha having existed in a largely unbroken lineage since its introduction in the 2nd century. During periods of declining, the Sri Lankan monastic lineage was revived through contact with Myanmar and Thailand. Periods of Mahayana influence, as well as official neglect under colonial rule, created great challengers for Theravada Buddhist institutions in Sri Lanka, but repeated revivals and resurgences – most recently in the 19th century CE- have kept the Theravada tradition alive for over 2,000 years.
