Chairman of the Mahabodhi Society of Sri Lanka Venerable Banagala Upatissa Thero says that society can only be steered on to the right path by intelligent individuals.

He made this comment while addressing an event at the “Pulathisi Buddhi Mandapaya” in Polonnaruwa on Saturday.

The annual talent show of the Chiba Tansan Pre-shool in Polonnaruwa took place on Saturday evening under the auspices of the Chairman of the Mahabodhi Society of Sri Lanka, Venerable Banagala Upatissa Thero.

Venerable Banagala Upatissa Thero expressed these views;

[quote]A good education is what is important. If a group of intelligent people are created, it is only then that this country can be steered on the correct path. The children at the pre-school receive the first step for that. The infrastructure for those who received education was laid 130 years ago by the late Anagarika Dharmapala. I am a person who follows the same path. Many activities are being undertaken for the betterment of society to ensure that journey continues.[/quote]
