The center for Buddhism (Int’l), hardly three years old since it
was established in early 1998, has accomplished so much in so short a time by way of the many projects and programmes that
it was able to implement. It has earned lavish praise from everybody concerned for these achievements. Such a performance
was possible because of the very high quality of the human resources found in its membership of over 85 comprised of dedicated
missionary monks, university academics, public officers serving or retired, doctors, surgeons, veterinarians, engineers, accountants,
lawyers, architects, planters, social workers, journalists and Buddhist activists.
